Neil A. Miller, Morris Titus and John M. Coale at UAW 1985 Show.
Approximately 4,000 people visited Local 662's first Antique Tractor and Gas Engine Show in Anderson, Indiana, on June 1 and 2. We were pleased with both the turnout of exhibitors and spectators.
This year's show broke down to 31 tractors, 3 model tractors, 133 gas engines and 1 pumper. The show also had 25 craft and 15 flea market exhibits, an antique watch display and several food booths.
We had a good time putting on our show, and are already looking forward to next year's. We hope that our enthusiasm passes on to our visitors and exhibitors, making them feel proud to also be a part of our show.
Basically, we had nice weather this year contributing to making the antique tractor show races and cranking contest in the afternoon and blue grass music in the evening very enjoyable.
Next year, we will be having 4 bands, 2 of country and 2 of blue grass. We will also have a large variety of contests, with cash prizes given to the winners.
Please come out and join us next year, June 7 and 8. Our admission is free and our motto is courtesy.
