Twenty-eight years ago Moe Titus and his uncle Hiram Titus
ventured to Elwood, Indiana to see what was going on at the Elwood
Historical Club. That was all it took for the bug to bite. A couple
of weeks later the Titus’ attended the Pioneer Engineers Club
at Rushville with Moe’s grandfather’s engine. Moe
remembered going with his grandfather, Jim Keller of Milner’s
Corner, to pump water for cows in a pasture using the engine for
power.

Moe and his family have gone far and wide enjoying other shows
and promoting the local shows.

Sharing his enthusiasm with his dad, children and now grandsons,
has made this a true family affair.

Being one of the founders of the Tri State Gasoline Engine and
Tractor Association at Portland, Indiana, some twenty-six years
ago, and being chairman of the UAW Local 662 Antique Gas Engine and
Tractor Show since its beginning, has given Mr. Titus much pleasure
and satisfaction. ‘It is fun to see others enjoying your
hobby,’ says Moe.
