The thirteenth annual show was held May 30 and 31, 1998 at the Kempton, Pennsylvania, Community Center.

The featured tractor and equipment was Allis-Chalmers, with a very good display by the owners of that brand. There was a total of 144 farm tractors, 22 garden tractors, five pedal tractors, 73 engines and 20 model engines on display. There were 139 antique tractors (up to 1960) that hooked up to the tractor pull sled, plus 94 flea market spaces rented.

There were tractor parades, tractor games (both farm and garden tractors), slow engine contests, teeter-totter balancing, plus children's activities with pedal pulls and KettKar events. The club ladies had a successful bake sale, and various club memorabilia was available.

The Pennsylvania Tractor Pullers Association also had pulls both days, and with a track area that is wide enough there were two pull sleds operating side by side on Saturday afternoon into early evening on Saturday. A garden tractor pull had been scheduled for Friday evening, but severe thunderstorms forced cancellation. The weather cleared by Saturday morning, and spectators, exhibitors and flea market vendors were able to enjoy sunshine for both Saturday and Sunday.

The 1999 show is scheduled for June 5 and 6, at the Kempton Community Center, located in Berks County, north of Interstate 78.
