OK, just got back from the Lagrange Engine Club show in Wellington.

Like last year, it was a very nice show. HORDES of GTs :D

Also same as last year, not many Bolens :(

OH, about the only "Bolens Goodies" in the flea market was a "Flea bitten" 1000. You will see it in the pics. I did have some one ask if I was looking for any Bolens parts. He didn't have them with him, but he doesn't live too far from me. He has 2 tube frame PTO units for $20.00 each, and I'm going to buy them. I need one for the 800. The one on it now needs bearings, and it would cost me a lot more than that to have it rebuilt.

I didn't take as many pics as I could have, but chose to focus on the ones that were a bit "different". I mean, we all know that the "garden variety GTs look like. I hope you all find these pics interesting. I'll start with the Bolens and then post the 'other brands'.

That custom Caterpillar is simply amazing! I figure the engine is out of a Cub Farmall? I wonder how the final drive is built? I could look at close-up pics of it all day!

It isn't that bad. My Unico 15 was that rough or rougher when I got it. I see possibilities!

Thanks for the pics. Looks like a nice show.

Really enjoyed the unusual stuff, think stuff like that makes the hobby. Am going back to stare some more at the Sears now...

Favorites were the Cat dozer cause I ust to work for them. In fact retired from there. The Farmall F14 was nice. The Sears with the end loader and the Allis with the fork lift was also cool. I fact there were a whole bunch of fine specimens. Pink wheelhorse OK.
