The best of everything was to be had at the 18th annual Mid Michigan Old Gas Tractor Association Show in rural Oakley, Michigan, August 21-23, 1992.

It was the first show in 18 years not dampened by rain. This was also the first show to have doubled exhibitors, campers, flea markets and spectators.

Featured this year were all tractors and equipment starting with an 'A' according to the American Encyclopedia of Tractors.

A 30 HP A very undermount was a new feature of the show this year. It is owned by Ed Hurd of Byron, Michigan. Mike Holder's 30-50 Advance Rumely Oil Pull could be seen on the Baker fan and threshing throughout the weekend. Another Oil Pull, a 20-35 belonging to Mike and Penny Koski of Elsie, Michigan, could be seen in action. There were many B. F. Avery tractors and equipment also shown, over 700 tractors in all.

This year we are featuring all tractors and equipment starting with a B. In 1993 we will have the largest collection of Baker gas tractors in the U.S. on display. For information on displaying your Baker steam or gas tractor or thresher, call me at (517) 723-2369.
