Super-Sized in 2009: I&I Antique Tractor & Gas Engine Club Show

Things may have been downsized in '09 but Historic Farm Days was not one of them

| April 2010

A lot of things may have been downsized during 2009 but Historic Farm Days – an annual presentation of the I&I Antique Tractor & Gas Engine Club in Penfield, Ill. – was not one of them.

The event played host to an enormous Allis-Chalmers feature, the Classic Farm Tractors Calendar Reunion, American Truck Historical Society Show, two Smithsonian exhibits and a Cushman scooter display.

Big Bud 16V-747, the Australian tractor trekkers and a selection of equipment in original condition were also on hand. (Read more about the equipment in original condition: “ Collecting Authentic Pieces: Vintage Equipment in Original Condition .”)

All that was in addition to the show’s regular lineup: tractor pulls, extensive field and construction demonstrations, parades, garden tractors, swap meet, museum displays, and spark show. Check out these photo highlights in the Image Gallery!
