The 10th annual Southeast Kansas Old Time Gas Engine and Tractor Club Show was held June 27 and 28, 1998 at the Crawford County Historical Society Museum grounds in Pittsburg, Kansas.

The club decided to honor one of the founders of the club, Quentin Jensen, who passed away several years ago. We invited anyone who purchased any of Quentin's engines to bring them back to display them at the club show last year.

Among those people who brought engines back were Mr. and Mrs. Arnie Hartman, Monroeville, Indiana. They brought a Sandow and Lennox to display. A total of 10 people brought back Quentin's engines.

At this show we had 120 engines, 17 model engines, six steam models, 12 garden tractors and 13 tractors on display.

Prior to the show, the club installed a flag pole in the display area and surrounded it with a rock and flower garden and placed a memorial plaque with the names of deceased members on it. We received many favorable comments not only from exhibitors, but also from visitors.
