Ran up to Saukville (40ish minutes north) today for the Wisconsin Antique Power Reunion Show. Brought six tractors with us (the most that could fit on the big trailer). Remembered the camera this time! Except didn't walk around and take pictures. Getting better though!

Here is our crew all loaded and ready to go.

Adam did take a few pictures, so here is a cute little guy we saw.

Of course a normal tractor show morning/afternoon wouldn't be complete with some rumors going around of some tractors for sale. Sure enough down the road was a snowmobile trailer with three tractors on it owned by a man who used to work for Bolens (experimental department of the company - learned some cool stories!).

So Adam made an offer on two of the tractors he had for sale and he agreed. So we left the tractor show and came home to unload the trailer since we were already full and come back up to grab them.

Got the crew back home and time to unload!

First up, another Ride-a-Matic! This one comes with a working tiller and mowing deck. And it runs and drives! My first experience driving one!

Now you need a bigger trailer! Or you could add a second story to yours to haul them on, kinda like a car hauler. Thanks for the pics.

That is a nice collection of tractor that you have.
The show looks like it had a good turnout. .. Thanks for taking the time to take photos and sharing them.

I really like the little Pennsylvania that you brought back.

Thanks for the pics!

Just one question though...... Why does that Bolens 1000 have a pink seat :confuse:

Because I was in a rush to get that tractor together. And that seat which is purple was ready to bolt on and go. It looked weird at first, but may stay there till I restore the tractor.
