Variety at the Boone Show

| July/August 1997

Sec. Carolina Fly-Wheelers EDGE & TA Branch 45 3841 Highway 421 South Boone, North Carolina 28607

The High Country may not have had the Olympics this past summer, but for many antique engine enthusiasts it was just as exciting. The mountains came alive! It was summer time and the High Country was jumping with activities. One such event was the 17th annual Crank-Up hosted by the Carolina Fly-Wheelers of Boone, North Carolina on July 26, 27 & 28, 1996, at the local race track and fairgrounds. The show was as spectacular as the view!

There were so many different exhibits that it would be impossible to list them. I would, however, like to mention some:

Jody Scholl showed a small original steam engine that was possibly used to power dental equipment, or something small.

Jeff Hutchings had an impressive display of spark plugs and steam whistles.

There was also a beautiful collection of antique cars provided by The Foothills Antique Car Club of Hickory, North Carolina.
