This past weekend, a 3-day show was held at the Dougherty Museum, Longmont, Colorado. The show is an annual organized by a group of "old men" as an agriculture/machinery show. Chapter 9 was there, as were other clubs. Here presented are a few photos of the show that may be of interest to you. GWH

And of course there were a whole lot of other interesting things. The Fifteen was donated by Jeff Burnham, and garnered $1000 at the auction. The Museum owns a Sixty, and brought it out for the show.

Here are a few more photos of the show exhibits. The weather was pretty nice. Saturday beautiful, Sunday a little warmer. But the breeze made it feel so good. Couldn't see the mountains too well because of all the forest fire smoke in the air from adjoining states.

Now let us see what else the show had to offer! Unfortunately, this software program does not post photos in the order in which taken and uploaded. So sometimes the order doesn't make sense.

The robbin's egg-blue Ford pickup was built in 1954.

The Coleman Truck was built in 1929. They were manufactured in Denver, Colorado. Kinda reminiscent of the old Walters plow trucks. It is owned by Ken Kafta. He let me take it around the show for a ride. It is very hard of steering, and left by elbow in discomfort for the rest of the day. Ken published an article about the truck's history in a 2005 issue of The Wheels of Time, the magazine of the Antique Truck Historical Society. Thanks Ken for the fun!

GWH,
Thanks for sharing the pictures with all of us. I’m going out on a limb here with saw in hand. The Avery Engine appears to me at least as a Avery 40-H.P. and is a locomotive style undermounted engine with a double cylinder, and yes there were built in Peoria. That being said it could be a 20hp, or a 30hp as all the undermounder Avery Traction engines appeared be all alike from a distance and the untrained eye. I think the 40hp Avery had the larger of the locomotive cabs and that tractor looks to have a very large cab.

Did you notice when you drove the Coleman and photographed the same that it had two spark plugs per cylinder?
Thanks again for sharing the photos and your time. And, of course your 60.
Kelly
