Close to 100 antique tractors of all makes and shapes were on display Saturday on the Boyd MacQuarrie's farm in Bonshaw during the annual Antique Power Show.
Most of the machines have been restored to almost new condition and in some cases better than new. The highight of the day was the "run" through the back fields and roads of the Bonshaw Hills and that is where the tractors proved they are still have what it takes to tackle the hills and fields.
This year the show celebrated the 60th anniversary of the merger of Massey Harris Ferguson, but organizers emphasize, "all makes are welcome and there will be an excellent cross-section of all tractor makes."
MacQuarrie has 20 Massey Harris Ferguson tractors and said that with good participation by local farmers and collectors, there was an excellent representation of Masseys.
The show featured Massey Harris back in 2007; since then, MacQuarrie has acquired one Ferguson and three Massey Ferguson tractors. Two are considered to be the first true Massey Ferguson tractors, after the company decided to go with one line called Massey Ferguson.
