Regarding painting antique gas engines, here is my 7-year-old daughter, Alyson Hyatt, with her fairy-tale pink 1928 2 HP Stover.

Alyson was in the December/January 2008 issue of Gas Engine Magazine pictured with a 1926 Stover and mentioned that she was painting her next engine pink. Well, here it is!

This Stover is a Type KA, serial number 195242, with a WICO EK magneto. Besides the custom paint job, the engine sits on a custom-built white oak cart that I made.
