Young, old and all ages in between, came to share in the fun at the UAW Antique Gas Engine and Tractor Show that was held June 5-7, 1992 in Anderson, Indiana.

UAW Local 662 membership volunteers joined together to serve over 580 people at a delicious fish fry to start off the festivities of Friday evening. Craft persons and flea marketers were selling their wares, as exhibitors were arriving with their shiny, restored antique tractors and gas engines.

This year a glimmer of red stood out as International Harvester equipment took the limelight as the featured trademark. Fred Schenkel from Dryden, Michigan received the International 'Long Haul Award' with this IHC 450 tractor. Wayne Bechom, from Kokomo, Indiana, won the International 'People's Choice Award' with his McCormick-Deering W-12 tractor with plow.

Don Fenchum of Martinsville won the 'People's Choice Award' with his gas engine exhibit. His wife said, 'He is so happy. He has been to shows all around and has never been recognized before!' Bill and Mary Cline from Mesa, Arizona, received the 'Long Haul Award' with their Maytag gas engine exhibit. With people like this attending, it is easy to see why this is a fast growing hobby.

Dale Smith, Wapakoneta, Ohio, received the tractor 'Long Haul Award' with an Oliver 44 and IHC A. John Davidson, Anderson, Indiana, won the tractor 'People's Choice Award' with his John Deere B.
