Florida Flywheelers Village
If you are into antiques, especially old cars, engines, tractors and farm machinery, you need to visit the Florida Flywheelers Village near Fort Meade, Florida. During the winter months they have something each month between November and February. Just the other day a friend and I ventured a short drive from our campground in Wauchula to visit their Antique Engine & Tractor Show. It’s a huge event! Well worth the $7.00 admission fee to get onto the grounds.
The Village is one component of The Florida Flywheelers Antique Engine Club. This nonprofit organization was founded in 1972 to promote interest in restoring, preserving and exhibiting antique internal combustion engines, steam engines, antique tractors and autos, and other historical labor saving devices. The park in its entirety sits on nearly 240 acres, and includes a tractor pull track, an operating saw mill, barns and garages to explore, antique cars and trucks, antique construction equipment, and a flea market.
Here are some of the pictures I took at the their Antique Engine & Tractor Show … many of them from the tractor parade.
