The second annual Inman Farm Heritage Days Antique Engine and Tractor Show was held September 18-20, 1998 at the Rick Minter Farm on Hill's Bridge Road, Inman, Georgia. Inman is in Fayette County on Georgia Highway 92, between Fayetteville and Griffin.

The first show, held here September, 1997, was the result of cooperation by the newly formed Inman Pioneer Power Association, Inman Methodist Church, Georgia Antique Engine Club, North Georgia Two-Cylinder Club, West Georgia Two-Cylinder Club, and Minter family members and other neighbors.

The show was so successful that it just had to become an annual affair. This second show also far exceeded expectations, with over 250 exhibitors and an estimated ten thousand visitors.

Exhibitors came from all nearby states, with Bryan Nagel from Panama, New York, coming the longest distance. Since Inman is in a farming area, many of the over 250 tractors at the show were driven there. Mike Westbrook from Warm Springs, Georgia, drove his Silver King, towing an M-M pick-up baler more than forty miles on public roads to become distance-driven champion.

Demonstrations of grain threshing, baling, corn milling, wheat milling, blacksmithing, wood sawing, and water pumping were held during each day. The threshing machine, shown by Zane Bristol, was a 1930s International Harvester powered by his hand-cranked Fordson. Georgia Commissioner of Agriculture Tommy Irvin was pressed into service to feed the thresher for one demonstration. Any doubts about his farm background were quickly, totally erased.
