    Supposedly, the first two digits of the serial number refer to the year they were made. That would make them 45 years old. They are big tractors, being taller and heavier than a 40-62 Huber or 27-44 TC. They were made with individual wheel brakes and a fa

This year was the greatest show they have ever had at the show grounds about 9 miles west of Springfield, Missouri and 3 miles east of Republic, Missouri on Highway U.S. 60. When you enter the show grounds, you are in another world. Steam Engines are being groomed for a show which will take you into the land of yesterday. Gas Engines are undergoing tune-ups and Tractors enjoying the same tender loving care. Earl Smith is hustling about making last minute tests and improvements and checks on the Public Address system so necessary at a show of this size and so large of area. Earl tells the Engineers what the next event is to be and tells the spectators where to migrate in order to have a good vantage point to see the event. Harry Kloppen-burg is grading gravel under the steam engine motel.

During this preparatory period, as Clovis Burrel so accurately describes it, 'We do a lot of talking', and we do!

The Show this year was especially tailored to be of interest to all ages, both sexes and all folks with wide divergence of interests.



There were in excess of 150 vintage gasoline engines displayed by The Early Day Gas Engine and Antique Tractor Assn., under the able direction of James Haynie (President) and Rich Phillips (Vice-President) of Branch #16. There were some real gems among these engines as well as some most interesting accessories.

The show could boast of having TWO genuine full size Hot Air Engines. There are always new innovations at this show every year.
