Default Midwest Old Threshers Engine Display

Had an awesome 5 days of showing at the Midwest Old Threshers reunion. Always a great time meeting with old friends, new ones, seeing family, and putting names to faces! The engine area had one heck of a good turn out I would say! I cannot remember a year that I have literally talked so much with the public, whether it is a question about my engines running, what they did, or even questions asking where certain areas were along the grounds! It was great!!! Young, old, and every age in between I got to share my engine stories with! Here are a few shots of my family’s engine display...
First picture - My brother’s 15HP Mogul.
2nd - My 20HP Reid
3rd - My recent barn find 4HP Fairbanks H
4th - My Dad (Hank) talking with Paul Gorrell (1HP Famous powering a Hawkeye water pump) ( Ingersol Ram air compressor alongside it)
5th —— — — and lastly, here is a picture of the engine aisles, I have not seen the grass/ground looking packed down like this forever! And it’s not like it sees golf cart traffic like some shows. Mainly foot traffic! Already excited for next year and working on a couple more ideas to really pull in the attention once again!
