Well, got the 800 and G10 loaded up and ready to head out the the Lagrange Engine Show in Wellington OH.

Last year was the first time I attended. I took the 800 and the Brinley Dump Attachment. I was amazed at how many GTs there were. Seems like there were more GTs than farm tractors. There is also a huge flea market area as well. Maybe I'll get lucky and find a tube frame sleeve hitch, or some other 'goodie'.

I'll take a lot of pics this time, and post them here. There weren't a lot of Bolens last year, but all of the older GTs are interesting, so I won't play favorites.

I have the reel mower and dump on the 800 and the Sickle-Mo on the G10. Good thing that they are both tube frames, cause they just BARELY fit on the trailer :D

Good luck on your quest for 'goodies' and enjoy the show. I'll be looking for the pics.

Well, got the tractors down there OK. Gonna go back down tomorrow with the motorhome and setup in the on site campground.

Talked to one of the Wheel Horse guys. He thinks that some of the Wheel Horse guys will jump on the "extra" PTO unit I got with the Sickle-Mo. I hope so. I'd hate to see it just mouldering away here. It needs to be used :D

I know there aren't going to be many Bolens there, so that might be a good thing if there are any "Bolens Goodies" in the flea market. I know a lot more about the tube frames than I did last year, so I at least have idea of what to look for. Shucks, for all I know, I could have passed up the "deal of a life time" last year just because I didn't know what I was looking at :D

I have 3 batteries charged up for the camera, and I'll be taking my laptop as well, so if I fill up the memory card (it's only a 1Gb card) I can just dump it off the the lappy and go back to taking more pics :D

Just to give you an idea, her are a couple from LAST year. And yes, the "8N Ford" started life as a GT

Those customs are off the hook. The 8N on the Cub Cadet "O" looks really easy to do.
