Anew location brings on a new adventure. The UAW Local 662 Tractor and Gas Engine Show had been located in Anderson, Indiana, for the past 13 years. This year it was relocated at the Marion County Fairgrounds in Indianapolis, the site of the UAW Region 3 Annual Trade Show. With new facilities and a much larger area came more possibilities.

A total of 231 gas engines, 166 tractors, 37 union locals, farm tool displays, hog oilers, and 68 tractors and pullers from the Noblesville, Indiana, club contributed to our show. Also, ten states were represented.

Old friends from as far away as Minnesota and Georgia participated. New friends as far away as Mississippi came for the tractor show, and found much more with the trade show, in the displaying of modern technology. Also, the possibility of winning a new Saturn car that was given away on Saturday made for much excitement.

Even though we had to don our coats for part of the show, participants were warm-hearted and excited about the new show grounds. Ideas were formed on new ways to use our new-found space and bring an even better show next year.

The International Harvester collectors outdid themselves with their displays. Norman Jackson of Greenfield and Neil Michaels of Kokomo did a great job of rounding up the 'Big Red.'
