Antique Power Show held in Garwin

Newell Drury of Gladbrook says this Massey Ferguson Model 135 tractor is his favorite tractor for tractor rides.
Doug Stamp of Garwin is known as "Mr. AC man". He brought a line up of AC tractors, 9 AC pedal tractors, a spreader, disc, plow and planter. He is pictured with a series D10 AC tractor and a 110 manure spreader from the early fifties. This is a highly unusual spreader as it is a front unload. Doug says, "It was a pile of junk and I had to completely re-build it all."
Joe Parks loves Ford tractors and unique implements. Joe is pictured standing by a Ford tractor with a metal frame roof. There are hooks to attach a heat houser for winter time. The rear mount loader was designed to give better access to cleaning small buildings. Joe and Randy Clough have headed up the show for several years.
Tom and Lorri Waite of Garwin can move out in style with these two antique cars. Tom's is a '66 Chevelle and he has owned it about five years. The stately 1941 Ford Coupe was purchased in Toledo by Lorri's Grandfather Forrest Ambler. It is in mint condition and has always been owned by the Ambler Family.
Doug Stamp of Garwin stands beside an AC 2 row planter. It is from sometime after 1953 and is set to drill the seeds.
Brock Baldazo of Toledo brought his collection of the John Deere 30 Series. He is pictured by the 830 and the line up goes down to a 430. He says, "Only one missing is a 330 and they are scarce and very pricy."

July 4 the annual Wayne Judge Sr. Memorial Antique and Power Show was held at the Garwin City Park. Wayne Judge Sr. began the show many years ago as just a small gas engine event

Joe Parks and Randy Clough now organize the show that has expanded to also include tractors and cars. Parks stated, “I’ve been doing this about 15 years and the first year we had 5, then 7 and it has expanded that this year we have nearly 70 entries. It has just grown and is all by word of mouth. We are down less than 10 from last year.”
