If you think you’ve seen heavy metal, think again. From Friday, Aug. 17, to Sunday, Aug. 19, in Tillamook, the NW Old Iron Club will put on a show that makes Def Leppard look like a kitten.

Antique tractors, gas engines and other heavy equipment will fill the lawn of the Blue Heron French Cheese Co., accompanied by blacksmith demonstrations, tool displays and a swap meet.

Among the main attractions is a 1921 Nichols & Shepard 16-50 steam traction engine, weighing in at a whopping 22,000 pounds.

The show is hosted by Branch 159 of EDGETA, the Early Day Gas Engine and Tractor Association, and will feature clubs from Oregon, Washington, Alaska, Idaho, Montana and Wyoming.

Exhibits will be on display from noon to 5 pm on Friday, 9 am to 5 pm on Saturday and 9 am to 3pm on Sunday at 2001 Blue Heron Drive, Tillamook.

Admission is $3 per day or $5 for the whole weekend. Kids under 12 get in free.
