The Cedar Valley Engine Club will be hosting the Iowa Cornbelt Oliver Collectors Summer Show in 2018. They have hosted us several times in the past, and we have always had a good showing of antique farm equipment centering on the pride of Charles City, Iowa in the OLIVER FARM EQUIPMENT COMPANY.

The 2018 calendar year will mark the 100th anniversary of the introduction of the lightweight water cooled Hart-Parr Tractors with the "New Hart-Parr" also known as the 12-25. 2018 also marks the 70th Anniversary of the introduction of the "Three Beauties" in the new Fleetline Series of Oliver farm tractors, the 66, 77 and 88 row crop models. For the gas engine feature we will be targeting the Fuller & Johnson line of engines from Wisconsin.

The tractor feature does have ties close to home being that the majority of the tractors made by Hart-Parr / Oliver / White were made in the plant in Charles City, Iowa. Local and regional pride still exists in the fine examples of collections large and small around the upper Mid-West.

Anyone interested in exhibiting at this show is invited to bring what you can out for all to enjoy. If you don't have a unit that falls into the feature make don't feel left out. They would welcome any other makes to add to the show.

They have added some new things to their show in recent years. Started a couple of years ago was the "Barn Talks" located at the South end of the grounds in the lower part of the barn. In these talks have been varied topics from "History of Jello", "History of the Duesenburg Family" to "Magneto Evolution and Care".

The Roseville Store is ready to welcome you to take a step back in time to see what it was like to shop in a 1940's general store. Other various displays are happening all throughout the grounds for you to take in. Or even take part in if you wish.

Like in years past, they will be having the tractor and truck pull on Saturday of the show, weather permitting. The normal start time of it is around 10-10:30 am. Monday after 12 pm is the plowing in the North Field.
