The Hungry Hollow Steam and Gas Engine Club featured Case tractors and equipment at their 49th annual show held June 23-24 between Barron and Rice Lake. Among the tractors on hand were a Case “Spirit of ‘76,” owned by Larry Rasmussen of Cameron. This style of tractor was manufactured in Racine in celebration of the U.S. bicentennial. About 200 of these Case 1570 tractors were built in 1976. Two “Spirit of ‘76” tractors were offered to each dealer, and they had to order them by spring of that year.
