Portland is as much about what’s for sale as what’s
being shown. There aren’t many places where you’ll find the
sort of variety offered in Portland, so I took a stroll through the
vendor area at this year’s show, looking at engines for sale
and making note of asking prices. Note the operative word here,
‘asking’ prices.

How much these engines actually sold for is anybody’s guess.
Some of them likely sold for the asking amount, some of them likely
sold for less and some of them likely didn’t sell at all.
Certainly there were some good buys on hand, but whether the asking
price was too much, not enough or just right, well, you decide.
