Young Iron: Tyler Whiteneck

Tyler Whiteneck is rebuilding the engine and tractor collection he grew up with.


| April/May 2016


Take a quick glance at the exhibitors and attendees at gas engine shows, and it’s easy to think that this is an older person’s hobby. But take a closer look and you’ll find a growing number of younger enthusiasts. You’ll meet them here in Young Iron.

Tyler Whiteneck, Age 16, Hamburg, PA

Q: How long have you been collecting gas engines?

A: I’ve been collecting for about three years, starting with a 1-1/2 hp McCormick engine.  



Q: What attracted you to the hobby?

A: My dad has been collecting engines and tractors for a long time. I grew up around engines and tractors. My dad sold all of the engines and tractors when I was young. Now I am starting to get interested, after seeing pictures and hearing about all the stuff we had. I’m starting to get a lot of the engines back, but I’m still a long way from the original collection size.
