These are photos I have taken of my collection. The first photo (right) is of a 1928 Witte 2 HP log saw, serial no. 81424. In the background are the tractors I have restored over the years. The shadow on the left side of the photo is my shop with my collection of engines. None of the engines are anything special, but I have enjoyed restoring them. Below is the collection of my engines.

Our town of Newell, Iowa, has a population of 950. We have Pride Days, a three-day event, complete with parade, ball games, reunion of the school classes and other things. The last few years I have been setting my collection out for display. Quite a few people stop and admire them, which I really enjoy.
