The Texas Early Day Gas Engine and Tractor Association held its annual show at Spreegleville August 6-7, 1983 and a good time was had by all!

We had a good many old tractors and gas engines the John Deeres out-numbered all others.

The Miller brothers had their 1915 Bull running at the show and Calvin and Lou Buice ran their old friction drive Heider tractor.

Austin Bertrand won the antique tractor pull with his 1928 L Case tractor. Russell Munday pulled the corn sheller with his 1937 John Deere B. The kill start race was won by Louis Miller with his 1919 Fordson. Meanwhile, the slow race was won by Ray Miller with his 1919 Huber Light Four.

Lynn Spencer ran the hay with his old Farmall Regular. We sawed cordwood with Calvin Buice's cordwood saw and Bradley and Regan Ware ran their old grist mill and sold corn meal.

We had a very good assortment of old gas engines popping at the two day event. We also had a man with a rope machine making ropes.

Unfortunately the show was cut a little short when it started to rain after dinner on Sunday. However, we are all looking forward to another show next year the first weekend in August.
