It's Showtime! Part 3

One of our annual traditions is to go to the Gallupville Gas-Up. This show is mainly antique and vintage farm equipment, with hit and miss engines of all sizes on display, but it also has some very unique vehicles thrown in for good measure. The variety is astounding and entertaining. The event runs for two weekends, but the first weekend was a washout, so the second weekend seemed to draw more people and displays, making it the best Gas-Up we have been to. Here are some samples of these unique machines, almost all of which are in running condition and driven around the grounds!

There is a huge building on the property where the show is held, filled with engines and vehicles waiting to be restored. Barn fresh and still in the barn.

One of our favorite parts of the day was the stone crushing demonstration. Lots of noise and smoke, but it does the job!

All these shows sure got our imaginations in high gear and you'll see the results in my next post.
