Here's a heavily modified B-Series forklift mounted to a 712S.

None of the original subframe was used and the mast had been cut and lengthened.

This restored B-10 was the only yellow garden tractor at the show.

All in all it was a great show. I was only there all afternoon on Saturday. There was a great representation of early model AC's. There were no Terra Tigers and few B-Series. Next time we have a GOTO in MO it will be closer and I might take a few to display. I had a great time meeting Micheal Wells and talking with Jacob Bohler and other collectors. I did not happen to meet ShovelHead. Its getting late. Will post more tomorrow night.

The grounds had many relocated and replica historic structures. This Phillips 66 station was my favorite. I didn't get any interior pics. It was adorned with period appropriate memorabilia.

I was only at this show for 6-1/2 hours and didn't really get to take it all in.

Mark, it was a very busy show. There were over 300 AC tractors (including the L&G tractors) and there were probably a good 75-100 "off-brands" too. Garden tractors were not well represented. I would say overall it was well attended. We will have another GOTO in a couple years at Boonville, MO. I am planning to exhibit at that show as its not quite as far away. Lathrop was almost 4 hours each way.

Links to many more pics over on the AC forum:
