OilPulls at the Mid-Michigan show 

Accompanied by travel partner and editor Leslie McManus, I ventured to Oakley, Mich., for the 37th annual Mid-Michigan Old Gas Tractor Assn. show August 18-21, 2011, hosting the Rumely Products Collectors Expo. When we walked on the grounds near the Baker Barn, the huge flywheels and distinctive rumble of the mighty machines made it feel like we were walking into “Jurassic Park”.

 Here are some of the prairie giants in front of the Baker Barn.
