We’d like to start off with our sincere apology to Mr. John
Derby of Gibsonia, Pennsylvania. We made a REAL mess of the two
stories of his which we printed in the February and March issues.
In short, the illustrations in the March story (p. 25) belong to
the February story (with the exception of the photo of the Economy,
which is the subject of ‘A Second Chance.’) The February
story, ‘Flower Garden Engine’ (p.3) appeared with a photo
of the correct engine, but without the additional illustrations
pointing out various parts. The egg’s all over our faces on
this one, and we want everyone to know this was OUR mistake, NOT
Mr. Derby’s! There’s no defense for this one, just a sorry
mix-up, which we regret.
On a happier note, the weather here has begun to resemble
spring, and we know that all of you will soon be ‘out
there’ at auctions and shows. Don’t forget to order one of
our 1996 Show Directories, so you’ll know where to be when!
This year’s edition is a hefty 12 ounces and 240 pages.
And by the way, we now have an Internet page, which you can find
at http: \ \ www.xmission.com/~lancpa/stemgas, for those of you who
enjoy cyberspace, so pay us a visit! If you can’t find us, try
searching on ‘gas engine.’
