The Traugers Old Timers Day was held Aug 14th in Traugers Grov 1 Miles SE of Exeter NE with a larger crowd than in 1982.

The Antique Car department was outstanding in quality restored cars and numbers. This writer counted 20 and did not get them all! The Trauger 1912 Buick touring made the parade route without a hitch carrying 4 passengers.

The rest of the displays were larger than in other years, Silage cutting from large green corn stalks fresh from the irrigated fields was a sight. The corn shelling provided corn cobs for those who wanted some. This writer does not know how many were taken to make corn cob jelly.

The machinery parade was interesting from house drawn wheel scraper to a mechanical ear corn gleaning machine that would pick up the dropped ears of corn in the field and put them into a trailing wagon.

The steam engine operating display included a small portable and a 6 HP NS traction, to the 50 to 60 HP size.
