The 11th annual South east Kansas Old Time Gas Engine and Tractor Club Show was held June 26, 27, 1999, in Pittsburg, Kansas at the Crawford County Historical Society Museum grounds.

Featured tractor this year was John Deere. We again had exhibitors from around the four states of Kansas, Missouri, Arkansas, and Oklahoma.

The weather was hot again this year, which held our crowds down in the afternoons, but there was a good turnout during the mornings.

A new feature this year was a free hamburger-fry on Saturday night for the exhibitors and their families, it was much appreciated by the exhibitors and will be continued at future shows.

While making the rounds and meeting the non-club member exhibitors, I had the chance to meet and visit with Mr. John Shipps, of Iola, Kansas, who was showing a 1919 Moline Universal tractor restored by his son Gary Shipps, from Tecumseh, Kansas.
