Some highlights of my recent trip to the Lawn & Garden Extravaganza show near Evansville, IN. 

The custom Ford 9600 (built from a Ford LGT) and custom Massey (built from MF10/12) were probably my favorites.

Massey was the feature. They were hosting a large regional club. Quite a few nice machines.

Found myself some trinkets and MF caps.

Of course I had to go take some train pics too. Spotted this CN power on the CSX bridge into nearby Henderson, KY

Thanks for the awesome pictures Chris!

I've always secretly liked the Patio Deere tractors but the custom fabs are always my favorites.  Sheer talent!

The Ford and Massey are just awesome !

Also liked the Bolens with the sickle mower.

 

Wish you had more pics and info on the weed mower hanging on the Cub Cadet.

Thanks for posting all the pics.  

A lot of work and love on display.

(Wonder how long it would have taken to download your full post back in the dial-up modem days)

Hi Chris

What a wonderful pictorial of the tractor show. You did a awesome job with your photos and that is just the type of presentation that makes our interest peak in lawn and garden tractors. Wish we had some like this in my area. m

keep up the good work , I really didn't realize how many different tractors were out there.

Thank You Paul!   There are several large shows like this here in the U.S.  Portage Wisconsin is the next large garden tractor show. Coming up in a few weeks.

Thanks for posting, love the pics!!  Looks like a show to put on my list for retirement days, which will be next summer.

When you said the ford and Massey were your favorites that’s like choosing which one of your kids you like best.   It looked like a lot of good stuff there.  From the pictures I really liked the soil mover. It looked like a pan they use on big excavation jobs.
