Default Greyhound

I was writing another post today and was remembering a good friend of my dad's Mr Bill Flowers of Adena Ohio. Mr Flowers had a 24 HP Greyhound from the Banting machine company of Toledo Ohio , dad and I would always see him at the Stumptown engine show. It was back in the 80's when we all would hang out. I was wondering what ever happened to the engine after Mr Flowers passed away. I haven't made it to Stumptown in many years but the last time I was there I didn't see the engine.
Thanks
Tom

Tom,

I asked my dad about that engine just the other day and he said that he thinks Bill's daughter still has it.

There was a 24hp Greyhound that was shown at Jim Whitbey's show near Fort Wayne, Indiana in the 1950's and 1960's. It was a 24hp engine number 21111, it is now owned by Craig Detwiler of Goshen, Indiana. This might be the same engine, as there aren't to many Greyhound engines around.

Speaking of Jim Whitbey and the Fort Wayne show, whatever happened to his Rumely that he called "Susie Q."

Hey guys, I'm not at all a Greyhound sort of guy, but it looks like a pretty solid engine to me. Dave Weimer sent me this photo from the Chickentown show.

The Rumely "Susie Q" is owned by the Saunders family of Addison, MI. I was visiting with them with Troy Pawson a few years back and saw it in the barn.

I think the "Susie Q" is around Kokomo Indiana and shown at the Rushville Indiana show and few others. You might check out their website to find pictures.http://www.pioneerengineers.com/images/Engines1.jpg. I believe that Susie q is in that picture.

Gary,

If this is the engine that I think it is, I didn't buy it (somewhere around 1990) because I thought that $6,500.00 was tooooooooo much. But then again, I was only in college and didn't have much $$$$.

Jeff,
It only gets worse with age. I turned down a butt strap Port Huron under steam for $1000 in 1958...Because that was too darn much "blue sky" for that engine.
