Here's a unique picture taken at the Mid-America Threshing and Antique Show at Tipton, Indiana. Each year the tractors are arranged to spell out the name of die featured tractor. The Oliver/Hart-Parr collectors enthusiastically arranged the 47 Oliver and Hart-Parr tractors and crawlers in a little over an hour for this unusual picture.

The aerial photo is provided by the Terry Ploughe family at Tipton, Indiana, as a service to the featured collectors at their cost of $3.00 per picture plus $ 1.00 mailing cost. If you would like one of these unique pictures, contact Terry Ploughe (317) 675-6058, or Mike Hodupp, Box 431, Van Buren, Indiana, 46991, (317) 934-4454.

The hospitality of the Tipton group was the most sincere I have ever experienced. They are to be commended for the hard work and planning that is exhibited by this unique event at their show.

400 tractors and all the usual show festivities are enough to draw any tractor enthusiast to Tipton. It is an opportunity that only comes once a year in central Indiana, to see horses, steam engines and all ages of tractors plowing in the field at one time. The sounds, sights and smells are fond memories that still linger long after the show.
