Q: How long have you been collecting gas engines?  

A: I’ve been collecting and restoring engines for about four years now, but I’ve been helping my grandpa with them since I was little.

Q: What attracted you to the hobby?  

A: Being out in the barn with my grandpa, messing around with the engines and being at the shows. I love watching and listening to them run.

Q: Who else in your family collects engines?
A: My grandpa and I are the only ones who collect them. He’s the one who got me into collecting.

Q: What engines do you have in your collection?
