Inman Farm Heritage Days

| May/June 1999

584 Drayton Woods Drive Tucker, Georgia 30084

The second annual Inman Farm Heritage Days Antique Engine and Tractor Show was held September 18, 19, 20, 1998 at the Rick Minter Farm, on Hill's Bridge Road, Inman, Georgia. Inman is in Fayette County on Georgia Highway 92, between Fayetteville and Griffin.

The first show held here September 1997 was the result of cooperation by the newly-formed Inman Pioneer Power Association, Inman Methodist Church, Georgia Antique Engine Club, North Georgia Two-Cylinder Club, West Georgia Two-Cylinder Club, and Minter family members and other neighbors.

The show was so successful that it just had to become an annual affair. This second show also far exceeded expectations with over 250 exhibitors and an estimated ten thousand visitors.

Exhibitors came from all nearby states, with Bryan Nagel from Panama, New York, coming the longest distance. Since Inman is in a farming area, many of the over 250 tractors at the show were driven there. Mike Westbrook from Warm Springs, Georgia drove his Silver King, towing an M-M pick-up baler more than forty miles on public roads to become 'distance-driven' champion.
