Busy summer. I finally got to a show over the weekend. Portersville PA.

Baby 8N built on a Cub Cadet.


Wagner Little Giant


Jacobsen built Ford 120


Bantam 5000 with duals


Line of Wheelhorses


49 Economy


Tiger with duals


Another Tiger with single rear wheels


Oliver was the feature tractor this year and there were some real nice ones there.

I've been using tinypic to post pictures and it's getting to be a royal pain because you have to type in a code for every picture you post now. I guess it's to keep people honest but it's a real pain in the butt. This site is good but it's not real easy to post pics. Is there something easier than tiny pic?

Very nice pics! I like the mini 8N idea.

For pics I use photobucket. It is free of the verification codes, and it lets you resize the images as they are uploaded. It also lets you upload them all together, and just grab the image code from each to paste into the forum. The only downside is that you will need to register an account.

I really like the mini Ford
I priced buying the kit from some guys in Ohio but soon as I asked about shipping to Canada they no longer would respond to my emails.

Thanks for all the comments. Glad you like the pics. I gotta tell ya, this is what I consider my home show. I've been taking tractors to this show for 22 years now. For the longest time I was the only garden tractor there. Well, my Economy/Power King group started to meet there about 8 or 9 yeears ago and things started to change. The quality of the Economy restores went up and then other brands started to try and out do us. As a result, most of the graden tractors that show up at this show in August are of show room quality as you can see from the pictures. We went from a couple of garden tractors in the corner field to just about filling the corner field up. As a reward of sorts, it was voted that Economy/Power King would be the feature tractor for 2011. If anyone has them and you want to come and have a blast with some real nice fellas, drag them out, shine them up and bring them to the show next year. We want them all, original, restored of in bad shape, it doesn't matter. Mine go in their work clothes because I no longer have one that is restored.

Portersville is where my brother and sister live. Been to the Steam engine show there several times but not lately! Guess I'll have to reconsider that and see if I can get down that way next year!

Jeff,Great pictures,I had the time to come this year...but I tore the cartilage in my right knee on 7-30-10.I do not think I could have made a whole day of walking at the show.I was on crutches at the beginning of last week.By the weekend I could walk on it if I kept it stiff and watched where I stepped(slopes and hills very bad on the knee)I went an orthopedic surgeon today.He said it should heal on its own and if it gets worse come back! I'm going back to work tomorrow,wish me luck!!

Good luck Larry! Missed you this year. I'm a little late in responding because my internet has been down since last night. Gotta love technology!

Oh, that reminds me, plan on Portersville with tractors in tow next year, Larry. We got the feature!
