Hardy gas engine and tractor enthusiasts from eleven different states challenged the cloudy skies to come to the fifth annual Antique Gas Engine and Tractor Show, held on the grounds of Local 662, in Anderson Indiana, on June 2-4. There were more than 70 towns from Indiana represented, and membership from 58 different local unions in attendance.

After a long week of work, families of all ages enjoyed visiting with old friends and making new acquaintances. While participants shared their prized collections, whether it was the 9 HP Lambert gas engine that was made in Anderson in 1912, the Anderson Museum provided by Barbara and Dan Davis, restored antique tractors, or a toy tractor collection, a good time was enjoyed by all.

Whistles, shirts, knives, antiques, and even 'Ralph The Lizard' were among the various items that could be purchased at the flea market held on the back parking lot.

In the auditorium, craft dealers displayed their talents, offering a wide variety of beautiful and unique items. An atmosphere of nostalgia was created as Dell Huhn and Linda Shaffer spun wool, and Carolyn Titus quilted on the beautiful 'State of Indiana' quilt.

Music to please the ears of any toe-tapping listener was supplied by the White River Folk and Bluegrass Club, the Five Grand Band, and Dyer's Calliope.
