What a beautiful place to hold a tractor show! As we pulled up to park for the event we spied manicured lawns, colorful flowers and big red barns. Welcome to the Gilmore Car Museum grounds! The Kalamazoo Valley Antique Engine and Machinery Club held their 34th annual show and exhibition June 28-30, 2013. The feature this year was John Deere and Cushman, but all makes and models were welcome. Dan Yeck, club board member and chairman for the John Deere feature for this show, along with his wife Sandy and many other club members hosted quite an event.

This is a perfect spot for a show. Not only were there many exhibits, tractors and vendors to see but you can also tour the numerous barns and buildings on site to view extensive impressive collections of vintage cars, motorcycles, one of North America’s largest displays of hood ornaments, a replica of a Ford dealership and a recreated 1930’s gas station Station.
