Kind of fun. Some old beasts in and out of tanks. No wonder the Germans lost, they had to crank their's by hand! :lol:

Thanks for posting ! I was working in Indiana a few years ago and had the opportunity to attend the Antique Engine Show.

It turned out to be an informative and enjoyable weekend getting to see hundreds of antique engines in action. Everything from minature steam, to large trailer mounted hit and miss, oilfield and sawmill engines.

Of course, one of the small Maytag kick start engines followed me home. :D

My bride got a little nervous when I asked if we had any plans for Aug 12th &13th.

The last air show at AVP was in 2000 and a really nice 140 taildragger tried it's best to follow me home. ....... Stay Tuned :geek: :D
