On Move

On August 13, 14, 15 & 16, 1992, the Ohio Valley Antique Machinery show held their 22nd annual Reunion. This was a very proud and memorable show for everyone involved. This year marked the first year on the organization's new grounds purchased in November 1990. It was a lot of hard work getting the ground developed and ready for the 1992 show, but everyone worked together hand in hand to accomplish this goal. We also hosted a very successful first National Ford Meet, which resulted in starting a Ford Club.

The 1992 Ford Reunion had been in the works two years prior to the show, and resulted in a huge success. A Ford registry started before the meet by O. V. A. M. had become very large by show time. This registry was turned over to the Ford Club, which formed at the show to continue and make the registry even larger for future collectors to use. To register with the association, send name, address, serial number, and model to the Ford/Fordson Registry & Collectors Association, 645 Loveland Miamiville Rd., Loveland, Ohio 45140.

The oldest Ford tractor at the reunion was a 1917 Fordson experimental model brought by Duane Helman from Rosewood, Ohio (Picture #1). Duane has pictures of Henry Ford driving this tractor back in the early years of the Fordson. This tractor, along with all of the other tractors, did not sit idle, but was on the move at the show.

Picture #2 is one of three rare tractors that Dwight Emstrom brought from Galesburg, Illinois.

Tom Rohrick of Batavia, Ohio, exhibited his Fordson road roller, which has been at the show for over two decades.
