Thursday thru Saturday, shortened up a little this year, but about what was offered anyway with people leaving early and such. No trailer or spot this year for me and bud. First time I think. In past has been minimal at times, yet this time nothing!  Getting out you know!  Going  to look around, not sure if coming back Friday, will have to see. Not lot of tractor money either this time, been a slow money year for me for some reason.  Think spent it all in Spring.

Why is it so easy to spend $$ and so darn hard to get any back?

My friend and I are going tomorrow, (Friday).   Wives too, but they don't care nothing about rusty stuff, they'll

head for the flea market and antique shops in town.

Jay County Park? Fair  land?  Not sure exactly. Go into town on 27 and ask anywhere. It is a few blocks over. OR, if you come in on 26 till 27, go straight thru the light there a couple blocks back and turn left, go right by it.

Was nice today! Most of show was in the wooded area, some shade then. No rain, but not real hot either. Nice. This is only day for us. Found a couple driveshafts is all for me. Bought a Steer Horn for my buddy. Saw Red Car Kids there at sandwich stop. All the regulars there, selling all the same stuff they drag around to all the shows, ha! Saw a nice H23 from regular Bolen's seller that I bought from before. He said was "too good" for me and wanted $1200 for it. Was really nice and pretty big! Here's some pictures. Here are few of a loader tractor made by STRUCK, the crawler people that I had not heard of. I knew they made some mowers/tractors, but didn't know of this heavy of rig. MTD 990 with loader was $1500, same old DeVere running around still, see it at all the shows last few years. Found a fella with Boxes of Bolens tube frame trans gears and shafts and many other things. Another guy with bolen's tube frame blades, that I wanted to get one of, but will wait till have running tractor, heh! A D250 W-Horse Renault engine in parts. An LP Gas Bolens, and one with big Diesel in it.

Met Steve and his friend, very poor with remembering names, about 10 am. First one I have ever been to so I was amazed at the stuff that was there. I did pick a few hitch parts for my Simplicity. Got a rear ball mount but if I had waited on buying that I could have gotten one that would work on front and rear. I also got a complete sleeve hitch from the guy that had the fancy hitch/ball mount.

 

Thanks Steve for showing me around.

I am planning on the spring show.

 

After looking at my tractor that hitch for both front and back won't fit on mine because the grill sticks out in front of the Frame.
