The Kentucky Antique Farm Machinery Association, Inc., held its
sixth annual show at the Lampkin Farm Showgrounds outside of
Owensboro, Kentucky on June 27 and 28, 1992. The two day event was
filled with everything a steam and gas show has to offer, Kentucky
style, from a ? scale Case steam engine owned by Billy Byrd of
Madisonville, Kentucky to the array of over 125 antique tractors
from five states, and 187 operating gasoline engines from 11
states. The air was filled with the sounds and smells associated
with an event such as this.

A threshing machine owned by Lampkin Farms was put through its
paces. The club’s Baker fan squeezed every available horsepower
out of the many tractors to take it on.

Mr. Nick Wink baled straw with his IH stationary baler. There
was a sanctioned antique tractor pull Saturday night with over 73
hitches. A large gathering of the various makes of tractors were
put to the test. Sunday afternoon’s pull was just for fun and
attracted a lot of interest. The tractors were stock tractors,
mostly off the rows of show tractors on the grounds.

A large flea market provided plenty of unusual items for sale,
and the crafts were a big hit with the ladies.

Dennis Hutchinson served as show chairman for the fourth year
and kept plenty of activities on schedule, including the starting
contest, slow races, and parade. Weather was perfect in the low
80s, which contributed to the largest crowd on record.

We are looking forward to next year’s show, the third
weekend in June, and would like to invite everyone out to see
