The Angus agricultural show is taking place at Haughmuir Brechin Castle on Saturday the 7th June 2008 and includes a section for vintage and classic tractors. I have never been to this show before and I'm too late for entering this year but I think I have a look down ( only 50 miles / 1 hour down the road). It should be nice to go to a show and actually have time to see what is going on instead of having to bother taking a tractor along ;D ;D  Need to get a new wheel and tyre for my Ifor Williams trailer and there is an IW dealer in that town so I'll be able to kill two birds with one stone.

Then a Underhaug tattie lifter on the same stand


Next the D M Carnegie stand and a new Scania R420


Next the A M Philip stand and a Case IH 155 and Welger RP435

Now back to the vintage stuff the main reason I was here was to get free entry to the show with my 1951 International Famall Cub CSJ 249

I was placed first in Class 10 Vintage Tractors ( petrol / paraffinn ) 1900 - 1957 which was sponsored ( for rossettes) by D & A Motor factors Forfar.

In addition I picked up the George Tawse perpetual Shield for best petrol / paraffin tractor in show



Another Cub was there and it was a 1955 French one exhibited by Tracey Low of Forfar... a new restoration. Unfortunately it arrived late and missed the judging. I'm sure it would have got a placing though... never mind there is always next year

Super pics Bill... thanks for taking the time to post them up for us mate...

Loving the Masseys (no surprise there then) ... But I have to say... the fendt's seem to get uglier as they go up the range in size... that huge one is pretty hideous to look at

Well Robbo I had to come in past work on the way to the Commercial vehicle road run to download them to make space but the road run from my point of view wasn't very good :( Never mind I post up what I got in a separate topic.
