About Us

History

 The Arizona Early Day Gas Engine & Tractor Association was founded in 1979.  It is a non-profit incorporated organization which started with 13 founding members and has now grown to more than 450  family members from Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, New Mexico, Ohio, Utah, and Canada.  AEDGE&TA currently has 3 shows every year.
A family oriented organization, AEDGE&TA plans activities for all ages.  We want to preserve some of our heritage by passing on the interest down to the younger generation.  The events allow club members to show off their fine collections.  Antique tractors are pulled for percentage and some classics and garden tractors are pulled for exhibition.  In addition to the tractor pulls and engine displays, there are contests with the equipment, silent auctions, demonstrations of early farming (including threshing and hay baling), craft shows, hayrides, and pedal tractor rides and other activities of all kinds. 

We invite everyone from all over this great country to come to our events.Members share a common interest in restoring engines, tractors and related equipment from the turn of the century.  This type of collecting and restoration has become increasingly popular in all parts of the country, where clubs have been formed and publications dedicated to the preservation of our mechanical heritage have emerged.​
Many old pieces of farm equipment have been rescued from the junk pile only to appear in one of our shows restored to their original condition.  In most cases, the restoration is made difficult by years of rust and neglect.  Often parts must be located or made and many hours of careful work are necessary before the final coat of paint is dry.  The restorer is rewarded by the feeling of pride when the engine is started and the old iron comes to life again.
