The last time I ordered a hot dog and cold drink at a Brewers game I didn't get any change back from a $20.00 bill so I really appreciate the Cool Springs vendors. Thanks also to all the volunteer helpers. Without them there would be no Cool Springs show. Here are a few thumbs.
The 2nd 3rd and 4th pix were taken in a small white building near the entrance and I lost my notes for them. Can someone tell me what they are?

I heard that a Briggs FC was had there, and for very little money. The lucky bugger.

Thumbs up Re: Cool Spring 2008 Show report

We stumbled onto the presentation by Wayne Grenning by accident on Thursday. Very informative and understandable discussion of some of the earliest internal combustion engines. Well thought out description of the history and how the engines operate (from the inside-out) and then start them up to see them in action!

That really added some beans to the chilli for me.

How did the Domestic seminar turn out?

My buddy bought it. He gave what was asked for it, then found out what it was. He said that he is going to clean it up, get it running, and put it in the living room at his house.

Visited the show last Tursday and Friday and had a wonderful time.

Here is a video of the 65 hp Blaisdell barking into the muffler pit. You could here this engine everywhere in the park.

The exhaust pipe is about 8" ID. Make sure your speakers ore on.

Hi Gary;
Thanks for the videos. There is an air compressor at the other end of the building where the Miller is. when it is fully assembled it will be belted to the Miller with a belt that is about 24" wide. I can hardly wait to hear the Miller bark with that load on it.
