UAWLocal662 Annual Antique Gas Engine and Tractor Show

| September/October 1997

UAWLocal No. 662, 2025 Hillcrest Drive, Anderson, Indiana 46012

Cool weather, warm smiles; dark clouds, bright colors; rainy weather, hearty spirits; put all these together and you have UAWLocal662's 13th annual Antique Gas Engine and Tractor Show, held June 6-8 in Anderson, Indiana.

Exhibitors began arriving Thursday, and the sun shone brightly on the glistening relics of yesteryear. This year's featured product line was John Deere tractors and equipment, and a massive wave of green and yellow filled the grounds.

Friday, as the dreary weather moved in, so did the craft and flea market vendors. Over fifty vendors displayed their talents and wares. Also on Friday, the annual fish fry was held, which was very much a success. This year's dinner was served by members of the Eden United Methodist Church in Eden, Indiana. The highlight of the dinner was the vast array of homemade desserts! Over 500 dinners were enjoyed!

Saturday, as the show was in full swing, many different activities were enjoyed. Even though John Deere was the featured product line, many other exhibits were shown. Numerous gas engines, old farm tools, model trains, farm toys, antique cars and trucks, hog oilers, etc., were among the many items to be seen. Even the mournful siren of John and Michelle Blake's 1954 International Harvester fire truck would catch people by surprise!

Throughout the intermittent rain Bob Rhea was taking the children for rides in 'Bob's Bumpy Barrels.' Dan and Barb Davis were kind enough to once again share their fabulous Anderson History Museum, featuring products that were manufactured in Anderson.
