The Oklahoma Antique Tractor Association, Inc. (OATA) which is a non-profit organization dedicated to the restoration, preservation, and education of America’s agriculture past. 


OATA was officially organized in February of 1992 with 26 members and was called Oklahoma Green & Yellow Two Cylinder Club, catering to people with interest in antique John Deere tractors.  As the club slowly grew through the years and with majority of its members owning or a least having interests in various makes of tractors and/or equipment, the membership voted in 1996 to change the name to “Oklahoma Antique Tractor Association, Inc.”  OATA was incorporated into the State of Oklahoma in 1997 and was granted non-profit tax-exempt status in 1998.


OATA joined the National “Early Day Gas Engine and Tractor Association” (E.D.G.E. & T.A.) which was formed in 1957 and is a national organization whose purpose is to stimulate interest in collecting, restoring, preserving, and exhibiting gasoline and oil engines, gas/diesel and steam tractors, power driven farm machinery and any other equipment of historical value. Individual membership is only available through the local branches which OATA became Branch # 116 in 2000.  For more information about EDGE&TA see their web site www.edgeta.org 


OATA’s membership has now grown to over 140 members (families, not individuals).  Membership meetings are generally held on the second Saturday of each even numbered month.  Meeting places vary, depending on club activities, events, etc.  The club publishes a bi-monthly membership newsletter, which includes club events, meetings, various articles, club member birthday and anniversaries.  It is a goal of this organization to acquire a tract of land, so the club can build its own club grounds for activities throughout the year. 


We welcome and encourage anyone who has an interest in our goals to join OATA.  For further information see one of our members or look at OATA’s web site http://oata116.com  or call the OATA Secretary Jim Rogers (918) 266-7081/email at rogersrdhd@aol.com  and he will get you the information needed to become a club member.
