If it ain't broke ...

| June 2006

Everyone has a preference. If it is interesting at a show, it is right.

I show a 1914 Gray 1-3/4 HP, as was done in a shade-tree restoration. Next is a 1913 Witte restored by me, but painted pink for laughs (as shown in Gas Engine Magazine in April 1990). I get so many comments and people still remember the article, so I leave it as is. Also, on my dairy display trailer, I have a 1910 Aermotor, 8-cycle, barn-fresh, but runs good. Spectators seem to enjoy all three examples. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.
