It would be worth the trip to see that left-handed associated air cooled engine they have advertised at the bottom of their add in GEM!.. ..I kept looking at that engine and couldn't quite figure out why it looked so different...Then it hit me that it was backwards!...What a great advertising trick! And they think we don't pay attention to details in that magazine.

Your right!!

It is a Gilson.

Should be a good selection of the Gilson Line there.

Gilson's and Rumley's all on the same show. Sounds like heaven to me!!

Come see us there, I will have three Gilson's with me!

Bill

Nice to see at least three people will be there. We are taking one of our trailers down this weekend to get our show spot.Has anybody seen Ed the leroy guy, just wondering if he got that big engine running that he has been working on.

My brother Art and I will be down to see you Thursday and Friday. No time to show but still fun to try and see it all. Enjoyed your layout last year. Would like to see that Delco plant running again. Only one I have seen running. Hope it is cool and dry.

I will be there sometime Wednesday with a couple of engines (no Gilson - I sold mine several years ago). Look for me near the gas engine registration shack.

We will be in about the same area this year. Looking forward to visiting, may not have as big a display as last year, due to gas prices Got one load there all ready.

Bob,that reminds me of the time my family tent camped at Old Threshers.
Midnight big rains caused the tent with my brother and I to slide then roll
down a hill. Had fun driving out next day.

Hey Bob what a great show this year!
I wanted to thank you Luke and Larry for the personal demonstration of the working Delco Plant. It was really neat to learn it normally runs on kerosene as well as it's electrical inner workings.

I spent hours going through all the engines. There were over 700 plus tractors. When they are staging for the parades you can hear and see 100 years of tractor history running. It was simply tractor heaven. Well I guess you had to be there. We will see you again next year.
