As a reader of Gas Engine Magazine for a number of years, I thought it was time I contributed something. These are photos of some of my projects.

In the past three years I have been working on the Crofton Bug. It is complete now, as is the Planet Jr. tractor. My present project is the Cushman Cub, Model R 14, r.p.m. 750, 2 HP, for which I need a connecting rod. It's such a small item but difficult to find in this area. Maybe some of you readers could help. I've tried some of your ads but no luck, hope someone can help.

I live in a mobile court and I don't have much room to store my goodies, so I just have the fun of restoring them and then I have to sell one before I can get another.

I think you have a great magazine and I look forward to it each month.
