It all started many, many years ago When our forefathers needed
more than a hoe

To farm their lands and fields to sow They needed engines and a
fancier row

Gasoline engines to ease the chore A new tractor, who could ask
for more The age of machines had come at last Now today, a thing of
the past

Our club is built on then and now We like to exhibit and show
all how The engines today, we keep on running The antique tractors,
they keep on humming.

We share our treasures with all we can A dedication to a long
forgotten man We love our toys, to us they’re great Come,
we’ll share, please do not hesitate

The Massanutten Antique Tractor and Gasoline Club, Inc. shows
are always the second weekend in June at the Shenandoah County
Fairgrounds in Woodstock, Virginia, just off Interstate I-81.

Last year, as the sun rose over the Massanutten Mountain, a
multitude of colors and sounds came to life: the oranges, reds,
yellows, grays and greens, the chugging, putt-putting and psst! On
display were 180 tractors, 182 gasoline engines, 38 lawn and garden
tractors and 23 pieces of farm equipment, just to name some.

The club had on display a total of 543 units. Two of our
members, a husband and wife team, showed 45 gasoline engines and
five tractors. Another member of the club displayed 23 engines, two
tractors and two half-scale John Deere tractors that he made
himself.

This year’s show will be June 13, 14, and 15th. We will have
arts and crafts, antique parts vendors, flea markets, food stands
and an ice cream stand. There will be an antique tractor pull
Friday at 6:00 p.m. Saturday there will be a pedal tractor race for
the little ones. Demonstrations will be all day Saturday and
Sunday.

We’ll be featuring John Deere tractors. The club will sell
raffle tickets for a chance to win a restored 1938 John Deere
‘B’ tractor, to be given away at Edinburgh Ole Time Days in
September.
