The 1987 Northwest Ohio Antique Machinery Assn. Show was held July 30, 31, August 1 and 2 at Hancock County Fairgrounds in Findlay, Ohio.

We had 320 gas tractors, 10 steam engines, and 500 gas engines. There were 20 different manufacturers of gas tractors coming from three states.

The featured tractor this year was John Deere in honor of the 150th anniversary of the John Deere Plow. We had 195 John Deere tractors on display as well as 35 pieces of John Deere farm machinery. We had a Green and Yellow Hospitality tent filled with chairs and benches for relaxation as well as many items of John Deere memorabilia on display. Paul Reichenbach was chairman of the John Deere display.

Activities for the event included corn shredding, wheat threshing, baling, log sawing, shingle cutting, Baker Fan, seven weight classes of antique tractor pulls, a slow race, belt up race, start up race and tractor square dance. There was a parade on Saturday of all tractors and some machinery.

One unique event was an 'H' John Deere balanced on three Coca-Cola bottles while the tractor was running.
