Default Greetings from a Kentucky collector (w/ pics)

Over the years I have come to this site when seeking information on old or obscure items. I have been collecting "treasures" for the past 40 years (my wife calls it junk, I tell her I am an archivist saving it for future generations).

I recently relocated to Lexington, KY from Richmond, VA where I have been active with Field Day of the Past for the past 15+ years. I currently am responsible for the threshing area, I have a Frick thresher and a Turner peanut combine that I run during the show. I also bring 25 or 30 of my chain saws to exhibit as well.

I am down to 10 antique tractors (all Olivers and Cockshutts), have 5 horse drawn Studebaker vehicles and 10 cars and trucks and about 150 chain saws plus a lot of other "stuff". I have included a few pictures.

Guido, welcome to KY. There are a few collectors in the Lexington area and the Central Ky Steam and Gas Engine Show in Paris, KY (about 15 miles from Lexington) will be the closest one to you. On the drive from Lexington to Paris you'll travel through some of the most expensive farm land in the world (some of the upper crust horse farms). Unfortunately I haven't been able to attend the Paris show for the last several years as its fallen on a weekend that I have an ongoing commitment. Its a nice show with real friendly folks.

I live about an hour and a half from Lexington and I invite you to stop by my place any time.

I am here, but all my "stuff" is still scattered across 4 counties in Virginia. Not sure how much of it I will bring out or when. I am in a rented townhouse now, but we have a contract on a house in a golf club community here. Since they won't let me work on a car in the driveway I doubt they will let me have a tractor.

I saw that show in the directory I have and have been thinking of getting in touch with them.

I have not been down your way yet, but want to get to Mammoth Cave soon, especially since White Nose Syndrome is headed that way and might limit exploration.

Welcome Aboard.

Hope you're able to come up with some kind of local storage for all of that.

I think one of those "Stude-Buggies' would look pretty nice setting on the manicured golf course grass.... though they may frown on the power unit attached to it.

I found the Turner in a shed down in Surry County, VA. I had to cut down some good size trees to get it out. I have taken it to a couple of shows away from where I normally run it but will not any more as it stresses the machine too much to haul it. I only had to grease it and replace 1 belt, but other than that it was ready to run.

I picked up this Keystone a couple of years ago and have since sold it. While it was inside it had a bit more weathering than the Turner.

You know a guy in Brooklet named Jeff Rice? If so, have him put it on a trailer and bring up to Richmond for me....

If you are interested in disposing with it I could use parts.
