Unofficial Home of Old Simplicity & Allis-Chalmers Garden Tractors

Freeland Antique Power Show in Ohio


Recommended Posts

This guy from Colorado was visiting inlaws in Ohio over the weekend and realized I was close to Freeland. There wasn't a lot there in garden tractors, and no Simplicty or Allis stuff. One thing that caught my eye was a Gibson tractor, which I had never heard of, and the place of manufacture was casted in big letters in the tranmission housing, "Longmont, Colorado". I didn't know any tractors were ever made in the Centennial State. Now I see J. L. Lasater shows a picture of another Gibson tractor, turbine powered no less, on his posting # 4593. I took a few pictures on film, not digital, so I'll try to send them when they get developed. P.S. There were a couple of steam tractors at the show . . . the same weekend as the tragedy at the county fair in Northern Ohio. It makes one think.
