Here are some photos that I would like to share. The first photo (right) is of Ron Baer's Friend spraying engine rig and pump. The engine was made about 10 miles from my home at Gasport, N.Y. I am an avid student of their history. Ron lives in Port Colborne, Ontario.

The next photo (below right) is a 10 HP Superior oil field engine restored and owned by Howard Weaver of Jamestown, N.Y. This photo is from the Port Allegheny show, July 21, 2006. Stiles Bradley (left) and Howard are seated in the back. Note the one-piece cast base for the engine and pump.

The photo below is a scene from my first trip to Portland, Ind. Awesome! "If you can't find it here, you can't find it any place," was the phrase we often repeated. It's hard to count them all! Keep up the good work!
