The Southland Flywheelers had their second annual show Labor Day weekend Sept. 5, 6 and 7th. Our show grounds are located 6 miles east of 1-65 on Hwy. 72 between Athens and Huntsville, Alabama on 8 acres of shaded oaks.

Although rain came one day during our show, we had a great time. The exhibitors did a real good job in setting up and showing. Thanks to everyone for a 'safe' show.

Speaking of RARE engines, we probably had a 'First' at our show as I've never seen but one of these engines running at any show I've ever attended. We had two Meitz and Weiss Oil Engines sitting side by side and running, and boy were they blowing out the smoke, but everyone loved it!

We also had lots of other beautiful and unusual exhibits. If you didn't come to our show, you missed a lot.

Even though we are a young show (2 years), we had 210 engines, 74 exhibitors, 6 tractors, 17 small steam engines, 7 hot air and solar engines, 2 grist mills, blacksmith equipment and lots of other small items.
