The 22nd Old Timers Club Show was held at the fairgrounds in Xenia, Ohio, September 25-27, 1992. This year Minneapolis Moline Modern Tractor Pioneers 1870-1969, the Prairie Gold Line, was featured. As is the case with many shows, equipment started to fill the fairgrounds days before the formal opening. Russ Luse and his large staff of enthusiastic officers and helpers had planned in detail the many activities of the event.

Jim Mason was on hand early to sign in the many tractors and equipment of every make. Bud Crager was busy trying to satisfy all the craft and flea market vendors with choice exhibit places.

It did take some of the tractor collectors, like the Bobby Quigley family, several trips to get everything to the show. Quigleys have Olivers.

There was the common, and the rare, like Ron Koogler's 101 John Deere which he paid $35,000 for. Ron said in the forties the Deere Company made five experimental truck garden size tractors labeled 101 with an LA engine. These FULL VISION tractors were sent out for trial, then recalled and this now is the only one.

Interest is usually centered around the more unusual at these exhibitions, and Don Cash's I-12 roller, Dave Luttrell's 1916 Montgomery Ward T conversion and Art Sedell's 1919 Ford Conversion had many lookers. Not to be outdone, Dick Durig had his chain drive Whippett conversion. Bill Dame-wood brought his recently restored 1930 Irish Fordson with a Traction Company conversion.
