Tractors, Tractors and more Tractors

Feb, 25th Thursday we went to the Florida Flywheel Show in Ft Mead. We went with Jerry’s sister Arlene and her husband Gary. Before they retired they were farmers. They had a farm in upstate NY. Jerry and his whole family was brought up on a farm so they all like to see old tractors and such.

Well, at the show they got their wish. I have never saw that many tractors in one place before. There were all kinds of them. Every make and model. There were a lot of old engines of every kind of description also.  In the afternoon they had a parade of tractors. Here are a few.IMG_0430


This is a HUME. It is a one of a kind. IMG_0441 IMG_0443 IMG_0446 IMG_0449 IMG_0450 IMG_0452

They had an old village with old school house, homes, old blacksmith shop, bank, firehouse, garage and many more.  There were many old cars also. IMG_0419


There was an flea market also. There were rows and rows of things for sale. From car and tractor parts, tools, household things to whatever you wanted to buy.

We left about 4:00 to go home. We stopped in The Villages at the Olive Garden for dinner. It was about a three hour drive one way but we had a good time.
