The News-Gazette also covered the events:
Glenn Miller's 1955 Farmall 300 pulling a 1948 McCormick reaper cut a five-foot swath through a wheat field Friday with dozens of spectators watching.Tomorrow the 2007 event wraps up.
Miller, a 76-year-old Seymour farmer, had heart surgery seven weeks ago, but said he was determined to recover in time to bring his antique equipment to Historic Farm Days, a show that continues through Sunday at Penfield, headquarters of the I&I Antique Tractor and Gas Engine Club.
"I've been collecting about 15 years," Miller said. "It's a little bit of history. When I was in school this is the kind of equipment farmers used. I begin to realize my age when I realize how much I know about this old equipment."
Miller and his son, Greg, restore their equipment themselves but Miller said he likes to build, not repair, so he leaves that work – and the painting – to his son.
"We collect both red and green, and I've farmed with both," said Miller of the predominantly green – John Deere – theme of the show this year.
