Should be a good show. Too bad the plant where they were built will be gone by then.

I will be bringing to this show (reunion) several Model M owners manuals, different editions of parts pricing manuals. Also Model H Power Disc Harrow and Power Disc Plow manuals, Model D tractor manuals. Plus other Model M & Model D related items. Even some Samson Tractor Company Horse Drawn books ! I'll be at the Rock County Thresheree in Edgerton WI August 30 - September 2 with these items.

This is Mike from the Paulson Museum in Rockford. Kent and his friends have done an incredible job over there at the model engine building. I went through kind of quick yesterday and I plan to spend more time over there today. I'm more of a Ford guy myself, but "when GM made tractors" is a really interesting bit of history.
