Visitors from the Netherlands

On a Gas Engine Magazine/Wade Tour trip to Europe in September of 1995 with C. H. Wendel, we visited the W. van Schayik collection in Holland.

In a conversation with Mr. Van Schayik, he mentioned that he was planning a trip to the U.S. and would be in California the next month, so I invited him to come see me and my collection if he was in northern California.

Much to our surprise, as I had forgotten all about that, about two weeks after we came home, he, his wife, and a friend came driving up our driveway. We looked my collection over and gave them a mini-tour of Auburn, then went on up Highway 80 to Colfax to see Don Dougherty's collection of trucks and tractors.

One year later, while I was working in my shop, three men and a lady drove up and introduced themselves; at first the only word that I understood was Van Schayik, so I knew they were from Holland.

Like all collectors I dropped what I was doing and gave them a mini-tour of my collection and then up to Don Dougherty's again.
