Take a quick glance at the exhibitors and attendees at gas engine shows, and it’s easy to think that this is an older person’s hobby. But take a closer look and you’ll find a growing number of younger enthusiasts. You'll meet them in Young Iron.

Q: How long have you been collecting gas engines?
I have been collecting gas engines for about 2 years now, but I have been active in the hobby for quite some time.

Q: What attracted you to the hobby?
A: I have always been fascinated with mechanical things as long as I can remember. When I was younger I couldn’t wait to go to my grandpa’s house to see what new engine or related project he was working on.

Q: Who else in your family collects engines?
A: My grandpa is the only other person in my family who collects engines. I am trying to get my dad involved in the hobby – he likes to help me out.
