Enid Antique Power

At the 16th annual Enid Antique Power Gas Engine and Tractor Show held in Enid, Oklahoma, on October 2, 1999, Harold Cooper of Enid was named 'King of Old Iron.' Harold and his wife Marilyn have worked very hard for the past sixteen years in establishing, promoting, and setting up the annual show.

Originally it was for the final fling of the summer show before the engines and tractors were stored for the upcoming winter. Over the years it has grown to almost 100 exhibitors from the extra efforts of Harold and Marilyn. They notify the previous year's participants of the show, arrange the advertising fliers, have the exhibitors' plaques created, and the list goes on and on.

This year old Mother Nature wanted to slow us down a bit with a very chilly wind from the north at about 30 mph. But this did not dampen the spirit of the participants. They braved the cold, looked at what others had brought, and then partook of the traditional 'Beans & Cornbread' at noon. The ladies of the club prepare the beans, cornbread, coffee, cinnamon rolls and desserts, which do not last long.

After the noon meal was served, a short business meeting was conducted and a drawing for door prizes donated by the area merchants was held. The rest of the afternoon was spent viewing exhibits, eating popcorn and visiting with old acquaintances.

The meeting for the year 2000 will be October 7 and will again be held at the Garfield County Fairgrounds.
