It has been the best of times and it's been the worst of times. This kind of sums up the last 20 years of the Mid-Michigan Old Gas Tractor Association. The last few years have been the best of times. We have come into our own.

It is hard to believe the club is 20 years old. I was a sophomore in high school and worked with the original members to put on the first show on the Lawrence Hoak farm west of Oakley, Michigan in August of 1974.

1993 was a banner year. The gate was up, the exhibitors were up and the weather was great.

The club paid off the 20 acre show grounds last year and the 20 acre parking lot is to be paid off this year.

In 1993, tractors and equipment, starting with the letter B, were featured at the show, mainly Bakers.
