Spring Thaw Out! When I read these words, special thoughts come to mind. Snow melting into a flowing stream, crocus pushing up through the moist earth, the sound of spring's first robin. In southern Indiana these wonders of nature seem to be overshadowed! Why, you ask?

Because, it's time for S.I.A.M.'s Annual Spring Thaw-Out! S.I.A.M., I must explain, are the initials of Southern Indiana's Antique and Machinery Club (est. 1979), a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation and exhibition of antique Americana.

Our 4th annual show and swap meet was held at the 4-H Center in Evansville, Indiana on June 13 and 14, 1987 in conjunction with T.O.T.A.C. (The Old Time Automobile Club).



An estimated 6,000 people enjoyed the many interesting exhibits, working displays, as well as plenty of good food and drink.

Over 140 gas engines, fifty antique tractors, three steam traction engines three stationary steam engines, seventy-five antique cars, and over 100 flea market vendors shared space on the shady 170 acre 4-H grounds.
