Newcomer Buys a Jaeger

| January/February 2000

I'm new in the hit and miss hobby. I bought my first 1927 Jaeger 2 HP engine last year. I worked on it over the winter and completed it in the spring.

I started playing with engines at the early age of 12, when I rode a 1946 Whizzer motor bike. All my spare time was spent trying to get it to run!

From the Whizzers, I went to Cushman scooters, then to quarter mile race cars, again building my own motors.

I've come a long way since then. I'm 52 years old now, and I still play with fast cars and slow Whizzer motor bikes. I have a '63 Corvette slip-window, 11 Whizzer motor bikes, and two Cushman motor scooters. I'm now adding a 1927 Jaeger hit and miss to my collection.
