Hello, and Happy Valentine’s Day! Sometimes it boggles the
mind to think so far ahead: as I write this letter to you for the
Februarsy issue, we’re smack in the middle of the Christmas and
Chanukah season. We hope the new year is going well for you, and
that your restorations and engine show plans are working out as you
As you are aware, sometimes things don’t go as expected.
Witness page four of the January 1991 issue of this magazine, in
the Reflections column. The same picture was inserted twice during
the printing process. The picture numbered 26/1/10 was correct; at
above you will find photo #26/1/11B, which owner Stan Holderman,
2621 W. 400 N., Warsaw, IN 46580 is asking help in identifying. We
try our best not to let things like this happen, but sometimes they
just slip past even the best of us! Our apologies to Mr. Holderman
and our subscribers.
We regret as well the omission of last month’s cover
caption, which also disappeared somewhere between our offices and
the printer’s. The Standard engine was recently restored by Jim
Reeser, 604 E. 8th, Lyndon, Kansas 66451. His story appeared on
page 13 of the January issue.
But enough about last month-on to February! We’re happy to
point out that we’ve added a few more color pictures than
usual. Enjoy them!
