Farm Collector Show Directory: Amped Up for the Season

| 2/25/2013 12:35:46 PM

Are you ready?! Spring is coming, and we all know what that means: Show season is right around the corner.

I don’t have to explain the significance of show season to the antique gas engine community: Swap meets, annual club events and reunions allow the opportunity to show off your stuff, see old friends and make new ones. Oh, and don’t forget the food – I’m counting down the days to when I get to enjoy a rib-eye sandwich at the St. Al’s tent at the Midwest Old Threshers Reunion.

The 39th Annual Farm Collector Show Directory is an invaluable resource for anyone with an interest in old iron. Whether you’re a seasoned veteran/road warrior who spends a good portion of your year hauling your engines around the country, or if you’re just looking for a way to spend a few weekends this summer, the Farm Collector Show Directory is a necessary guide to getting the most out of Show Season 2013. Think of it as a road map to the old iron community.

I’ve gotten a sneak peek of the 2013 Show Directory, and I can confidently tell you it’s the best one yet. With more than 1,100 show listings, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a weekend with nothing going on.

Sadly, my schedule doesn’t allow me to visit all the shows and meet with all the people I’d like. But the Farm Collector Show Directory gives me a chance to dream, plan and decide how to maximize the time I do get to spend at shows.

And the Show Directory isn’t just shows. It includes spring swap meets, consignment auctions, tractor pulls, thresherees, fall shows, annual meetings and just about every other old iron happening you can imagine.
