I sure as heck didn't want to stay around here and fix any number of things that are broken at the moment, so I did what any tractor addict would do. Today, I went to a tractor show!!!
This was the Lewis County [Missouri] fair and they have a small antique tractor show and pull. New this year - they also had pedal tractor show so I took one garden tractor size unit and one pedal. I only own one pedal so that was an easy decision. Didn't win anything but it was still a good time. There were about twenty big tractors and eleven pedals.
The kids had frog hop, turtle races, and an egg toss. One of the winners of the turtle races had his snappin turtle retaliate right at the finish line with a death grip bite that took a while to get out of. That kid really didn't care that he had just won first place! :mecry:
The Case pedal is mine and it has a matching trailer but it is not visable in the pic. A very fun and relaxing day!

Looks like a nice showing of restored machines there! We get a few restored ones at our local fair, but mostly the ones in their work clothes. Many of the units that show up are the farmers daily drivers!
