What do gas engine owners do over the winter? Well, Latimore Valley Gas and Steam Association and Kingsdale Gas Engine Show held a mini-show at the Hanover Mall January 17-20 of 1991. There were a dozen engines there, including Briggs 6k Strattons, Domestics, Internationals, Emerson Brantinghams, Sandwiches, Jumbos, Stovers and Empires.

This is the first time we've done this and it generated quite a few interesting conversations. For example, one old fellow walked up to my dad and asked him if he ever heard of a Stickney engine. The man said his father owned one which was 13 HP, then one day they hauled it of to the junkyard (any engine collector's nightmare). Then the owner of the junk yard took a 16 pound sledge hammer to the flywheel and couldn't break a spoke. These are the kinds of interesting conversations that we get.

The Kingsdale Gas Show will be held May 11 and 12, 1991. Show dates for the Latimore Valley Gas and Steam Association are July 19-21.
