The Mocksville Threshing Reunion & Engine Show

| November/December 1972

Mocksville, North Carolina 27028

The 16th annual Mocksville threshing reunion & engine show was held on July 4, 1972 on the farm of Mr. & Mrs. Robert Lyerly, which is 2 miles Southwest of Mocksville on the Greenhill road.

The large crowd represented several states and included an antique car club which brought 10 nicely restored antique autos. The oldest, about a 1916 Model 'T' Ford and the newest, about a 1936 Buick. The cars were all immaculate.

There were 19 antique gas engines on display & most were nicely restored and running. These were placed under the shade trees so the 'Engineers' could 'cool it', while attending them. The engines on display were brought in by Bill Grimly of Durham, N. C, Bobby Cartner of Woodleaf, N. C, Robert Hammer of Conover, N. C, Robert Varner, of Ashboro, N. C. and Gene L. McLaughlin of Mocksville, N. C.

There were 9 kerosene and gasoline tractors on display. Bobby Cartner had a single cylinder Gibson tractor on display and Earl Seamon and an associate of his had a very nicely restored English Fordson which was running throughout most of the day.
