Putt Putt-Chug Chug-PSST!
4050 S. Ox Road, Edinburg, Virginia 22824
It all started many, many years ago When our forefathers needed more than a hoe
To farm their lands and fields to sow They needed engines and a fancier row
Gasoline engines to ease the chore A new tractor, who could ask for more The age of machines had come at last Now today, a thing of the past
Our club is built on then and now We like to exhibit and show all how The engines today, we keep on running The antique tractors, they keep on humming.
We share our treasures with all we can A dedication to a long forgotten man We love our toys, to us they're great Come, we'll share, please do not hesitate
The Massanutten Antique Tractor and Gasoline Club, Inc. shows are always the second weekend in June at the Shenandoah County Fairgrounds in Woodstock, Virginia, just off Interstate I-81.
Last year, as the sun rose over the Massanutten Mountain, a multitude of colors and sounds came to life: the oranges, reds, yellows, grays and greens, the chugging, putt-putting and psst! On display were 180 tractors, 182 gasoline engines, 38 lawn and garden tractors and 23 pieces of farm equipment, just to name some.
The club had on display a total of 543 units. Two of our members, a husband and wife team, showed 45 gasoline engines and five tractors. Another member of the club displayed 23 engines, two tractors and two half-scale John Deere tractors that he made himself.
This year's show will be June 13, 14, and 15th. We will have arts and crafts, antique parts vendors, flea markets, food stands and an ice cream stand. There will be an antique tractor pull Friday at 6:00 p.m. Saturday there will be a pedal tractor race for the little ones. Demonstrations will be all day Saturday and Sunday.
We'll be featuring John Deere tractors. The club will sell raffle tickets for a chance to win a restored 1938 John Deere 'B' tractor, to be given away at Edinburgh Ole Time Days in September.
