VA Steam and Gas, Antique Tractor shows, old Iron in Virginia
August 8, 2002 update!
Someone was kind enough to foreword me a website- just click on http://www.johnnyputt.com - that has Antique Tractor show listings for eastern US States! That means that I won't hafta continue this webpage, because anytime you find my page, you can just continue on to these fine folks for the latest Old Iron Antique Tractor Restoration Show listings! I suspect this is a new website, since I haven't come across it before, but I'm sure it'll show up in search engines soon. But what really stinks is that I just learned we missed the show at Bridgewater July 17-20 - 2002 - the one that prompted me to make this web page - once again because THERE HAS BEEN NO EASY TO FIND ONLINE TRACTOR SHOW DIRECTORY!
Nobody else seemed to have a calendar of Virginia Steam, Gas, and Antique Tractor shows in VA, so I started one in hopes of helping lost souls trying to find tractor shows like myself. email me any links to tractor show listings, and I'll add a link to their calendar of tractor shows.
Soooo- From now on, just click here:

There is an extensive listing of Tractor shows on the "Shows
in 2000" web page, but even this
doesn't give directions. Surely someone must have gone to at least a little trouble to organize each show. I am baffled that they can't provide a little write up with directions for each show, each one on it's own web page like this, and actually containing useful information so people can actually know where and when to go to see it..
Rockingham County Fair , Rockingham County, VA (Boy, I hope they didn't pay too much for this almost pointless website! No directions, almost no pages of information about what's at the fair. My page may be rather simple, but at least I intend to include useful information as soon as all my viewers email me the info.)
? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? Looking for input on more VA antique tractor shows!
Please help me by emailing me about tractor shows you know of and I will post them here! BE SURE TO PUT "TRACTOR SHOW" IN THE SUBJECT LINE OR ELSE I WILL LOSE YOUR EMAIL.
Better yet, somebody make up a complete listing and I'll just link to it from this page.
*But I still had to add the (540) area code. They always assume we know these things. sigh.
