I have only been to the New York show once but I thought it much bigger and better than the Two-Cylinder Expo in Iowa.Some of the tractor were not as well restored but that does not bother me as I enjoy everything from perfect to plain and really like to see tractors that are still being used.I would never say anything bad about someones restoration as all of mine are in their work clothes.It seems to me the Iowa Expo people tend to have an atitude problem.

You are so right about the people at Waterloo, Ia. having an attitude problem.
Several years ago a friend took a 60 orchard model to one of their expos,and just because it didn't have a thousand dollar paint job on it they snubbed him as if he had brought a rattlesnake to the event.
I find it amazing that people would put up with their aggorance.

Come on, JUST because it didn't have a thousand dollar paint job?!? That's it? Really? There's gotta be more to it than that. I've been involved with "them" for almost 15 years. I know what kind of tractors they want to display and that's what I take. Not one of them has a thousand dollar paint job. It's been hashed over on this site a hundred times. Some people don't care for the requirements of showing a tractor at a Two Cylinder Expo. Fine. Don't go. Please don't try to tell us that you need to spend a grand on paint or you won't get in. That's just not true.

To answer the OP's original question. I'm going to Waterloo. It's much easier to find lodging that's close by. The Eastern Expo is a great show though, no doubt.
