Lighter Side of Tractor and Engine Shows

by Terri Keitel


Tags: happy trails, show season 2011,

I always enjoy discovering the lighter side of things at antique tractor and engine shows. Here’s my collection of some fun photos I took at this year’s shows. I have also included several pictures of the many different modes of transportation that people use to get around at the events. Enjoy ... and SMILE!
