(Photos by Greg Rourke) – We’re back with more great photos from the 2017 Northern Illinois Steam and Power show. We think it is pretty cool that Greg Rourke was at this event while Chad and I were pounding on the salt all week. It shows just how wide and deep the gearhead enthusiast world is, right? Some people love hammering the gas and going as fast as they can, making sure their equipment is capable of doing the job. Other people, like those featured here are not at all concerned with speed but rather celebrating the history and evolution of the machines that revolutionized the world of farming in America.
Greg Rourke is a ful on tractor freak and I say that as a tractor freak who is not on his level. The great thing about having a guy like Greg shoot this show is that he knows what he is looking at, he knows what’s cool, rare, and interesting as well as the fact that he knows what’s boring junk as well.
Enjoy these images from the Northern Illinois Steam and Power Show.
