My interest in gas engines started in late 2001. I had tagged along with my dad, Terry, to a few different auctions, mostly to see what the old tractors were selling for.



 

My dad owned a few older John Deere tractors as well as four or five stationary engines, which included a couple of John Deere and IHC LB engines.
