The Antique Engine Association of Reidsville, North Carolina, held its 18th annual show at the club show grounds located on Highway 158 East, on April 24-25, 1999.

The 200-plus exhibitors displayed a wide variety of tractors and engines. There was also a big selection of 'Big Boy Toys.' Being one of the first shows in the area for the new season, most exhibits have been freshly painted and carry very few 'show scars.'

The show featured a working sawmill, shingle mill, wood saw, wood splitting, corn mill, handle lathe, steam engine, and a 1940, 120 HP Fairbanks-Morse, diesel engine. All the exhibits are operated by the 80-plus members of the club, each hour of the show. A concession stand is operated by the wives of members and provides a wide variety of food for everyone. A kiddie train, built by members, provides rides for the youngsters during the show.

Over 100 tractors, dozers, and 'big boy toys' make up the midday parade of power.

Country and bluegrass bands provide entertainment for spectators on Saturday. No admission is charged.
