To my friends at Gas Engine Magazine, here's something you don't see everyday. After seeing this sit out at a local ranch for 20 years, I was finally able to talk its owner, June Sloan, out of it, but only if I promised to restore it. She used it when she was younger. The only tag on it is unreadable, so we just call it "The Tank."

If any readers know any information, such as age or make, please contact me.
