The North Jersey Antique Engine & Machinery Club, Inc. held its 7th annual show in July, 1986. Our shows are located at the Sussex County Farm and Horse Show Grounds in Augusta, New Jersey. Despite the poor weather on Saturday, we had a good turnout for the weekend. Our show is held mostly under the cover of 5 huge pole barns and a tree-shaded area on the grounds, so there was virtually no problem for all exhibitors.

This year we had quite a few attractions for all to see. Starting at 10 o'clock, both days were full of activity right up till fold-up time on Sunday. Some people even came on Friday night to use the camping facilities and get set up early for the show.



Here are a few of the things we had at the show:

Bill Genader ran the club's threshing machine with his 5 HP Fuller & Johnson Engine, (5) and Dick Haskins (1) and a couple of the other club members helped to feed and clean the machine. The demonstration drew quite a crowd. Fred Westbrook (2) had his display trailer and a feed grinder as well.
