I thought I'd start this thread to show how this year's and each year into the futures "National Graham Bradley and Sears Sold Tractors & Farm Equipment Show"
turned out. I am also wanting to use this thread to let everyone know when and where our club will be gathering, and anyone with interest in tractors of this kind can go to attend or display their tractors of this type. Each year we have 1 predetermined show that everyone will gather at to display their Graham Bradley or other Sears sold tractors at. As many of you may already know, the Graham Bradley, the Bradley, the Sears Economy, and the Thrifty Farmer are the main tractors that fall into the category of Sears sold tractors, all of which are uncommonly seen at shows. Each year we gather at a different show and one evening during the show we have a banquet to eat dinner. The first show we organized and met at was in 2006 at Penfield, Illinois and we have continually grown. I look forward to hearing from and meeting those of you who share the same interests in preserving these fine tractors and their history. I also am the editor of the "Graham Bradley and Sears Sold Tractors & Farm Equipment Newsletter," so please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about anything.
This year's show was held in Greenville, Illinois at the American Farm Heritage Museum Show. We had a total of 39 featured tractors. 25 Graham Bradleys, 8 Sears Economys, 2 Bradleys, 1 Graham Paige Motors Expiremental, 2 Thrifty Farmers, and 1 Sears Handiman.
Below are some pictures showing this year's 2011 show.
