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”

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
