Lock the gate! I hope to be down there Saturday!

There should be (2) 30 Russells, an 8 hp Russell portable and an 8 hp Aultman Taylor proving their points....plus a few doodle bugs.... Others too, but these come from my area.... The spark shows should be phenomenal!

There is a new belt!!!

I was there yesterday and will be back on Sunday.

There is also a Nichlos & Shepard, Gaar Scott, Port Huron, Russell portable, and a homemade model.

About 10-12 engines in total so far.

The weather will be great. Come on out!!!

I had a great time yesterday at the show. The 2 30 hp Russells each took their turns hammering on the power eater. Zach did a nice job sawing with his 30. Dave put on a very nice spark show with the little 8 hp Russell. John Gasper did a fine job with his Dad's 16 hp Gaar Scott.

Beautiful day to fire an engine...too bad mine was here at home.

I left my camera in the truck so everyone else will need to supply the photos.

Anybody get a pic of the Gaar-Scott and a serial number for me? Dang it Beth, if you like whiskey maybe you and I can finally agree on something, after all!

Mike,

If you look through those photos, you'll see multiple photos of Van's 16 Gaar Scott. Since it was also at NTA, you should ask Lawrence for the number.
