Default Looking For Foos Engine Pics for Club Shirt

Howdy Folks.

This year at the Texas Early Day Tractor and Engine show (http://tedtea.org)we are featuring the Gray tractor and Foos Engines.

Every year, our shirt pays tribute to the featured tractor and engine. I already have a great shot of a Gray tractor thanks to a fellow Stakker but am still in need of a Foos picture.

Hopefully some Stakker would be willing to let their Foos appear on our 2009 Show T-Shirt.

I am requesting that the shot be high quality digital format and that the engine be painted, preferably with the Foos logo.

I'll be sure to send you a free shirt as well.

Thanks!

Foos old and new style logos. Long leg on the "F" started in 1916.
Also picture from the Foos factory scrap book. I can supply very high resolution CD of any or all if needed.

Thanks for the pictures guys...But I'm afraid the yellow tape through the picture is going to be hard to get rid of.

Any other clear shots?

We can certainly use these logos however.

All very nice engines. I really appreciate you guys.

Thanks again guys...I was under the wire on this one.
