Nice engines. Someday I would like to find an upright of some kind.
Another one I would like to get is some sort of side-shaft engine. They are fun to watch run as they have so many moving parts.
On a humorous note, I remember one threshing show I was at. I was with my engines along with a friend of mine who had some of his there too. Some engines were just running while some were running pump jacks, corn shellers, burr-mills, etc.
A couple old-timers were standing there watching our engines. One of them said to the other, "Its nice to see these younger guys fixing these things up so we can remember what it was like to farm with them". The other old-timer responded, "yea, it is nice, but I don't know if I really want to remember what it was like to farm with them!"
