I don't know about your neck of the woods, but here in the Midwest it's finally spring. And not a moment too soon.

For engine collectors, winter is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, it sure is nice to have the time to sit back and ponder last year's purchases, giving considered thought to just how much work it's going to take to get that tired IHC M going again.

On the flip side, there's not much opportunity during the off-season to share our finds with other collectors, so most of us are about to burst when show season finally swings back around.

Especially when we have a "new" engine sitting in the wings just waiting to be seen.

But since most of us experience about a four-month lag between show seasons, there's plenty of time to get to work making new-found engines run. That "new" Economy might need a simple refurshibment or a total restoration, but four months is about right to get the job done.

Fortunately, however, a lot of those engine projects do get finished, and when the new season finally starts rolling around, a new batch of engines start working their way to the shows. It just makes the new season that much more exciting for the rest of us.
