The fifth annual Power of the Past Engine & Tractor Show was held September 10, 11, and 12 at Orlis Cox Sports Complex at K-68 and West 2nd Street, Ottawa, Kansas.

The show was attended by a large crowd of people from across the country as well as states surrounding Kansas. The farthest travelers were George and Helen Myers from Blain, Pennsylvania, who are collectors of Ottawa memorabilia. Their collection includes engines, tractors, and other products which were manufactured by the Warner Company of Ottawa, Kansas. They have attended our show each of the five years it has been in operation. We appreciate their efforts in getting to our show each year with a great exhibit. We look forward to their attendance each year, and at their suggestion we will feature the Ottawa engines on our 10th anniversary.

The Lovitts from California have been in attendance at the show the past two years. They bring a large assortment of engines and quality collectibles.

Allis Chalmers were the featured tractors this year. There were many models of the tractor exhibited which made a very impressive orange display.

The feature engine was the Maytag. A large number of Maytag engines and other Maytag products were exhibited, including working washing machines, washing clothes.
