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.

Q: How long have you been collecting gas engines?

A. I’ve been collecting them for 17 years.

Q: What attracted you to the hobby?

A. One of my friends invited me to go to the annual Old Threshers Reunion in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, when I was 14. I watched the old engines running, some running machinery. With the moving parts, I thought they were very interesting. I have been interested and intrigued by engines ever since that first show I attended.

Q: Who else in your family collects engines?
