Photos for the 2013 Show Season

Readers’ best snaps capture 2013 show season.

| February 2014

By all accounts, 2013 was a very good year for old iron. Painted, paraded and preened like never before, antique farm equipment was the star of the show at displays across the U.S. and Canada. Corn shellers to combines, windmills to tractors, steam engines to porcelain signs, gas engines to fire engines, relics of the past continue to delight showgoers of all ages.

As these photos show, there are dozens of ways to skin a cat. Clubs and collectors routinely show their individuality in their approach to the hobby. Looking for a great idea for your club’s show or your own display? You’ll find plenty of inspiration in these pages.

Whoever said that shows have to be held outside, in the summer, neglected to get that memo to the Maple City Antique Tractor Assn. Check out the photo of that club’s winter show. Looking for new partnerships? Take a look at a show put on at an Ohio retirement community. Need something to perk up show? The folks in Marshalltown, Iowa, tried a unique tug of war.

As photographers from across the country show us, photos don’t lie. The old iron hobby is alive and well. Enjoy these photos of Show Season 2013, and thanks to all who shared them with us!
