Getting Started With A New Hobby

| January/February 1989

75 Kendall Avenue Framingham, Massachusetts 01701

Late in September 1985 while visiting the annual Holiday in the Hills affair at Victory, Vermont, I found myself on a large field in the Gallup Mills section of Victory.

This was my introduction to the field of antique gasoline engines-about 40 old engines were on the field that day.

One year later, I returned to this same field and found the engine show to be in full activity again.

After looking at most of the engines and talking to some of their owners, I said that I would return a year later with an engine if I could find one to purchase.

Much to my surprise, I did find one at Holliston, Massachusetts, and I bought it-a Stover CT-1.
