Even Mother Nature could not dampen the spirits of the hearty folks that attended UAW Local 662's eleventh annual Antique Tractor and Gas Engine Show, in Anderson, Indiana, on June 2-4, 1995.

This year's featured equipment was Allis Chalmers tractors and equipment, and Indiana-built gas engines. Friday, exhibitors, crafters and flea market vendors really had to hustle to beat the rain and the wind. After dodging the weather all day long, everyone was happy to sit down and enjoy dinner. Once again, our annual fish fry was a huge success. Over 500 dinners were served.

Saturday the grounds displayed many sights and sounds. The massive orange Allis Chalmers tractors glistened in the summer sun. Gas engines were chugging away. The lonely siren of John Blake's fire truck could be heard 'moaning away' periodically. Dan and Barb Davis, of Anderson, had the very interesting Anderson History Museum, showcasing items that have been manufactured in Anderson. Barb even dressed the part, strolling around the grounds in her early 1900's dress.

Flea market vendors enjoyed beautiful weather, and everything was for sale from flags to wooden items, to wind chimes, echoing their beautiful music in unison. Inside, clever crafters displayed their talents. Ladies from the Spring Valley Quilt Guild offered demonstrations of the painstaking stitches that are needed in quilting.

The children really enjoyed themselves. They played on the playground equipment, enjoyed 'elephant ears' and old-fashioned ice cream cones. They squealed with delight as they rode over the grounds in Bob Rhea's 'Bob's Bumpy Barrels.' Thanks, Bob, for providing this unique ride.
