Hit-and-Miss

We didn’t really plan it this way, but this turns out to be
a bit of an IHC issue.

It all started when Fred Nolan’s great article on the
restoration of a very rare IHC motor hay press (complete with its
original 4 HP Titan engine) came in the Monday mail. That was a
great way to begin the week, but it got even better when Paul
Frasier’s article on the immaculate restoration of his 2 HP
1907 tank-cooled IHC Famous crossed my desk the next day. I have to
confess to a soft spot for IHC’s vertical engines (actually,
anything IHC), and when you see the job Paul’s done on this one
you’ll understand why. As GEM’s new cover format
highlights, it’s stunning.

What was already turning into a stellar week got even better
with Wednesday’s arrival of Jim Stalker’s article covering
his very first engine restoration. The engine? An IHC, of course,
but this time an early 1 HP hoppercooled Famous. Yes, it was a good
week, and it all rolled into a great issue.

Enjoy.
