We at the Buckley Old Engine Show enjoyed our 25th annual event, with fantastic weather and our biggest crowds ever!!

We had close to 100,000 people attend our four day show. We had 400-plus tractors with Fordson and Ford tractors being our featured tractors. We had a good showing of the featured tractors. Howard Southwell and Russell Royce had 10 of their Fordsons in attendance.

Over 600 engines were putt-putting away over the four day show. Antique cars and trucks always make a good showing with Gene Hartwig's 1917 model T being a big hit. The club's 1918, 40-70 Flour City is a big tractor and it is fun to see people looking up and marveling at its size.

Our flea market had over 700 venders this year. I don't think I made it through half of it.

Sam Zue and his crew kept the sawmill busy. People love to see a sawmill working. We can run our sawmill with a traction engine, gas tractor, the club's Skinner stationary steam engine, or our 77 HP Anderson hothead engine. The Anderson's muffler makes perfect smoke rings. Berney Depauw made a lot of apple cider with the club's 1906 cider mill. Free cider and it goes pretty fast.
