Default Coolspring 2012

The Coolspring Power Muesum is featuring engines built in Ohio. And a power point presentation on the Foos Gas engine Co. Done by Piston Fooster. (Preston Foster). So get those Ohio built engines ready. Here are a few we would love to see.Bluffton, Burkett,C.Benninghofen & Sons,Heer,CarlisleFinch, Middletown Machine. What are some of the others you would like to see? Marty

It would be great to have a Foos for every year since the founding of the Foos Gas Engine Co. 125 sounds like a nice number. At Foos Fever 15 years ago we had 96 Foos engines recored on our log and we were informend we missed a few.

Callahan, Columbus, Dayton, in the "rare birds"
I'd love to see someone bring a Bruce MacBeth but don't expect Dad has any interest in digging ours out.
Hope there are a few Advance engines there too...

Other than that I'm sure there will be some oddball stuff we'll never see anywhere else!!

I don't see Gearless or VIM on your list yet Marty. Dad and I haven't really discussed what we're taking yet. Can't wait to see all of the goodies on display!!

If any one has looked around Coolspring it is easy to see that oil field engines is a large part of the collection. If it was made in Ohio it is most welcome!
