Default Coolspring was “GREAT” 10/13-16/2010.

We had some showers from time to time but overall it was another great TRIP and had a good time . A lot of folks were scared off because of the weather forecast . Here are a few photos of what was left Saturday AM . Pretty empty……… .

I'll work on processing the handful of pictures and videos I took. Dad & I spent all day there on Friday in between showers. It sprinkled once in the afternoon even though there wasn't a cloud in the strike zone based on the wind direction. We went back for about 3 hours on Saturday morning and Paul's pictures capture what was left. It was really a beautiful day and we had a great time visiting several collector friends. This was our first trip to the fall show and we managed to hit it when the trees were at or near peak color. It really provides a stunning backdrop to all of the impressive engines on display!

I only shot two videos, but I think they are worthy subjects to share.

The first is an 1892 Charter engine. The neat thing about this engine is that the crankshaft rotates backward compared to most engines.



The second is a beautiful 8hp Hamilton engine. I think the reverse inclined bearing caps of these engines really set them off from other designs. Plus, there is a "cool" factor that they were built about an hour from home!

The miller belongs to bill hazzard. He wanted to get it a little closer to home. They are bringing in a big twin miller. They are going to expand the end of the building to fit it in. Rough and tumble will see the 30 miller next. that's bill in the red shirt. he does my hauling on big engines. very reasonable and very carefull with everything.

Bills engine is a 50Hp, not a 30 or 40. and there is a 50Hp coming back to Coolspring that was in the colection of John Wilcox, and there is a 150 twin old style also coming, but there is not going to be anything added to the building, just a little bet of moving things around.

I went Saturday about 11 in the morning. I was hoping to see more vendors but the engines made the trip worth while. were there a lot of vendors on Thursday and Friday? I worked during the week and could not make the trip until Saturday. I most certainly will return in the spring.

The field was about 1/2 full of displays and "stuff" for sale on Thursday. Folks left, and Friday was lighter with some new folks , and then Saturday, well you saw the photo and experienced it. The summer 2011 show will be "PACKED" with opportunities . Don't miss it.
