Tractor show features Allis Chalmers

June 1, 2014 | 0 comments

IXONIA

When grown men (and some women) come out to play, their toys are generally quite expensive and unique.

That's because many of them are rare, collectible and restored.

Hundreds of farm collectors were on hand with their "toys" at Ixonia Firemen's Park Saturday, May 24, and Sunday, May 25, to show off their restored or unique machines. Besides tractors and farm equipment, there were also stationary engines "put-putting" in the park, powering things like antique washing machines, corn shellers and more.

The Ixonia Vintage Tractor Expo began Friday afternoon with about 30 tractor enthusiasts driving their vintage tractors through the southeastern Dodge County countryside. The parade wound around through country roads, through woods and along a cow path leading through several Neosho area farms.

Another group left the show on their tractors for a few hours on Saturday afternoon to parade through the back roads to Pipersville where they viewed the large and unique collection of another tractor enthusiast.

There were numerous activities for attendees at the show, but what most people found enjoyable was the opportunity to reminisce and share stories about their memories on the farm, about their favorite tractors and about how they turned what once looked like a piece of junk into a shiny functioning tractor.

Flea market and other displays

The flea market provided the opportunity for those repairing antique pieces to find the unique parts they needed or to add to their collections of antique tools.

Inside the Firemen's Hall were numerous displays including Harvey Ziemer's country train setup and several miniature farms.

One unique farm display was created by Bob Smulski of South Milwaukee. His farm was built to scale and featured the barn, granary, corn cribs, silos and equipment as he remembers his family's Oak Creek Farm.
