World's Expo of Antique Farm Equipment


| March/April 2001


Officials of the Antique Farm Equipment Expo, Inc., an organization of antique farm tractor and machinery collectors, have announced they will again host the World's Expo of Antique Farm Equipment at the Ankeny Expo Park in Ankeny, Iowa, June 28 to July 1, 2001.

The Expo is planned to be the largest antique farm tractor and equipment show in the United States. Over 2,000 antique tractors and implements are expected during the four-day exposition. Also, the Expo is inviting exhibitors with restored and/or classic trucks to be their special guests this year.

For the first time, the Expo will host the official 2001 National Plowing Contest sanctioned by the USA Plowing Organization. 'We are expecting plowing competitors from all parts of the United States. This national plowing competition should add an interesting new activity to the Expo,' says Expo manager Lyle Kreps.

The Expo will also host a National Antique Tractors Pullers Association sanctioned tractor pull on Saturday, June 30. Kreps said, 'We expect over 400 hooks of a variety of makes, models and years of antique tractors.'



'We are also honored to have been chosen to host the National Convention of B. F. Avery collectors. We expect a display of 50 to 100 B. F. Averys at the Expo,' Kreps said.

Other scheduled displays include gas engines, steam tractors, field demonstrations, pioneer crafts, antique tractor and implement auction, antique lawn and garden tractors, tractor parades, scale models, restoration clinics, ladies' seminars, and children's events.
