We spent Saturday at a small town in central IL.

The G.T. part of the event was small but nice. There were 32 entries.

 I saw a few things I hadn't seen before. Like the weight on the front of the Wheel Horse.

All of the participants were given a door prize.  The wife got a limited edition ( 1 of 4 ) coffee mug.

My Amigo was awarded a trophy for participants favorite.

 

Here's the required pics.       Rick

Well deserved award on the Amigo, that is one sweet ride.

I wonder if the mini IH 1206 is one of Kurt Smith's creations?

Nice coffee mug and trophy!

We were going to that show, but we bought a "Toy Hauler" and was needing some items so we headed to Elkhart (RV capitol of the world) and bought some goodies.

We then went to Jones MI for a show on Friday, garden tractor salvage on Saturday and a show at Rushville IN Sunday.

850 miles this long 4 day weekend.

 

Rick, did the 1st couple of photos of Wheel Horses belong to Lane Ralph from Greencastle IN?

He was going to be there.

We took four G.T.'s and she registered two of them in her name.  Anyone registered got a door prize.

She does have award winning quilts, but none were there.     

And naturally when she is with me, I am her reward!  :D                   Rick

No.    Not  Kurt Smith.  The guy who built it is  Larry Smith.

He also had the Ford 145 with the plow.   He was standing behind them with his back to the camera.

I don't remember who registered them.  I only saw the gentleman once and didn't get to talk to him.

That front weight has to be rare to find.

 

After looking at the pictures again,  Yes they do belong to Lane Ralph,        Rick
