UAW 2195 Gas Engine and Tractor Show


| September/October 1995


Local 662, UAW, 2025 Hillcrest Drive, Anderson, Indiana 46012

On a chilly, sunny April 1, 1995, my wife and I 'adventured' to northern Alabama to see the first annual Antique Engine and Tractor Show put on by UAW Local 2195 for the Saginaw Plant in Limestone County, Tanner, Alabama, the largest cotton producing county in Alabama.

We saw Larry Lemmond's homemade peanut sheller powered by his gas engine, and various ideas on how to grind corn into cornmeal. The workers at Saginaw unquestionably joined together to bring out their restored engines, tractors, models and other related equipment. They stirred up a big iron kettle of beans and baked twenty pounds of cornbread (Larry's wife, Jonny, got into the act here).

We were treated to southern hospitality at its best! Arriving the day before the show, Larry Lemmond treated us to a tour of Saginaw Steering Gear. Engine enthusiasts really miss out if they don't go to the smaller shows and see how differently they put prized gas engines and tractors to use. This was a great show!
