We enjoyed that show some twenty years ago; first time we observed a steam traction engine pull.  Two of the four pullers pulled the entire track length. Also rode (in their special built trailer) reasonably close by a large moldboard plow pulled by steam traction engine; and to the east the state highway had become an impromptu parking lot for passerby motorists to also observe the plowing. And back to the west of their show grounds quite often would be a tractor operator along with granddaughter  or grandson 'putting along' enjoying the seldom opportunity of "driving Grandpa's tractor". Believe that was first time we exhibited our Allis G w/endloader.  All special memories. Herb(GA)

I know it's in Pontiac, IL, but what's the exact location of the show? I need an address or the name of the place it's being held.

Rich told me friday afternoon or evening is when everyone will get to hook their tractor to the sled just for fun. Not sure if it'll get broken down into different groups so the sled can somewhat match the tractors without constantly resetting the sled. Our too hot to farm ISP class and a few others too, pull Saturday night.

Rich, we are really looking forward to meeting you with our serial number 4355 Series II D21.

For any of us traveling from the north on I-39, you may turn off at Minonk, Illinois and head east. In 1985, just north if the exit as you turn off I-39 and drive through Minonk, there was an Allis-Chalmers dealer along I-39 when 39 was a two lane highway......please see the dealer's name on my hat.

Almost here! My 7040 is almost painted at the paint shop, then time to re-assemble. There will be many things I'll have to detail later, but it should make it!
