    I was finally able to get out and go someplace for the first time since March....everything else was canceled.....Although it was smaller this year the Portland tractor show was a good one.I didn't find as much stuff as I usually do but the items I did get are harder to find.
    First off is a original condition (no breaks,cracks,or missing parts) 1949 Smith-Miller GMC C.O.E. tow truck!Also notice the N.O.S. Snap-On decals, and a friend delivered an original photo of a local gas station I've been bugging him about for years!
    Second is a full Cen-Pe-Co Racing oil metal quart in great condition!These can bring good $ but this one was a steal!
    and last is the 1917 Waterloo-Boy experimental "Bath-tub" D ,later became the John Deere D in 1923.This is 1 of 5 built and 1 of one in existence! It was dug up while doing construction on John Deere's property!Sadly this was not one of my purchases!lol
    Thanks for looking and enjoy!

      That tractor would look great in my back yard.

      Isn't the Portland IND show the greatest? I try to go there every three or four years. I couldn't make it this year, my buddies went without me. It's interesting how the whole town of Portland gets into the picture with yard and sidewalk sales. You can find things at Portland that you can't find anywhere else.
