The Greenville (Ohio) Farm Power of the Past celebrated its 7th annual reunion July 6-9, 2006. The weather couldn't have been more perfect. The show, which has grown incrementally with each passing year, featured Fairbanks-Morse gas engines.

We had 167 gas engines, 279 tractors and numerous miscellaneous displays on hand. The GFPP show has always been a magnet for unusual engines and the 2006 show was no exception. We had nine Carlisle Finch 1/4 HP gasoline engines, two Wogaman engines that were made in Greenville and an M. Steiner engine.

The show also had a large contingent of Oil Field Engine Society members on hand with their engines. The O.F.E.S. group had fun, with several new members inducted into the society in a "special" ceremony.

We invite everyone to join us this year, July 5-8, 2007, when we will feature the International Harvester line of gas engines and tractors. Please visit our website www.greenvillefarmpower.org for more photos of the 2006 show and previous shows.
