The Historical Construction Equipment Association (HCEA), a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving history of the construction, dredging and surface mining equipment industries, held its 24th Annual International Convention and Old Equipment Exposition Sept. 18 to 20.

This year, the show was held at the National Construction Equipment Museum, located at 16623 Liberty Hi Road, Bowling Green, Ohio.

Highlights of the show included live demonstrations of horse-drawn, gas and diesel-powered antique construction machinery, equipment and vehicles built or powered by International Harvester were featured, along with other machines in the National Construction Equipment Museum collection.

Some of the equipment actually got back into the swing of things by digging a one-acre pond on the site, with the spoil being used to create a massive pile of dirt for the shovels and excavators.

Members of the Black Swamp Chapter of the American Truck Historical Society came by on Saturday to showcase their vintage trucks. The event also featured a banquet held at the Grand Rapids Roadhouse. Vendors also were on hand to offer vintage construction toys as well as old equipment manuals and decals as well as other vintage construction equipment related items.
