From Florida to Michigan, Arizona to Ohio, all roads led to our UAW Gas Engine and Tractor Show at Local 662 on June 4th and 5th, 1988. This year 39 tractors were brought in for our display. Ethol Andrew, Al Gardner, and Bob Rey did a super job of organizing contests for the proud owners to prove their abilities with their restored tractors.

Over 350 gas engines were registered from 76 collectors and restorers. Can you remember when your lights were lit by the power of a Delco Plant or your mother did her laundry with a Maytag gas engine washer?

Relics from Anderson's past were displayed in the 'Anderson Museum'. Did you know about the Irish Mail made by Hil-Standard or the Vertical Computing Scale made by Anderson Tool Company, around 1900, or the magneto made at the Remy Electric Company, or have you seen a 1940 Anderson Telephone Book lately? You know the numbers have really changed!

Thanks to Dan and Barbara Davis we got to enjoy over 60 of these treasures. If you know of other items 'made in Anderson' let us know or bring them to next year's show for display.

For our enjoyment and reminiscing, collections of bicycles, outboard motors, tools, toy tractors, motorcycles, antique cars, and much more were on display.
