Default Benner 2011 Fall Flywheel Get-Together

We had our annual engine show this last weekend, and it was a really nice time. The weather cooperated beautifully and the turn out was great.

We “featured” Olds engines and had 11 make it to the show. My wife and I are very appreciative of all those who hauled in and joined us for such a great day.

The farthest drive award goes to Wib Meyer from Canada who brought what I believe is a salesman sample Olds engine. Below are four pics of his contribution. Thanks Wib!

Here is a pic just barely showing a tank cooled Olds followed by a couple of pictures of a nice Jacobson, and finally, little Eli saying hello to a young goat, a tom turkey, and our tame deer (not quite in the picture).

An Olds logo, and then the engine it belongs to, Cocco peeking out to keep an eye on Bill, and then a Gearless Olds model. It runs really slow.....

A nice original Foos, a Chapman, some guys are able to solve any problem if they can just ponder it over an engine, and finally a Simplicity.

Here are two Olds engines. One had an unusual mixer - likely a Deyo style according to a catalog that was found. The other engine had a more "traditional" mixer.

Well, this is it for now. Our big thanks go out to everyone who came and enjoyed the day with us. It is the great people in this hobby that make us want to host our little gathering.
