Texas T-Rex prepping for Heritage Day in Bonham, Texas

Lane and the Texas T-Rex are preparing for the Heritage Day festival in Bonham, Texas.  After the Hunt County Fair pull in Greenville, Texas, a few changes were made to the tractor that may affect the weight balance.

 Additional shielding has been installed, for driver protection, in the event of any engine or drivetrain component failure.  The weight of the shielding will need to be compensated for elsewhere on the tractor.  So, a little test session is planned for Saturday morning on July 23rd.  If all goes as planned, we will stop by at the Red River Valley Antique Tractor Club pull at the Love Civic Center, in Paris. 

The Red River Valley Antique Tractor Club will be having an event at the Love Civic Center, starting at 8am.  We were invited to perform an exhibition for the club, with plans to combine an LSGTPA event in the future with this, we will have an opportunity to test while we put on a show for the club members and spectators.  After a test pass in Paris, we will then make any changes we feel are needed, and head to the Bonham event.
We are excited about the opportunity to pull at the Paris event, and hope that our appearance can lead to the addition of an LSGTPA show in Paris. If you're an early riser, venture out to the Love Civic Center in Paris, Texas to see Lane and his Texas T-Rex pull.  The antique tractors will put on an awesome show throughout the morning !
