For a long time I tried to get my little boy interested in rusty old iron 'gold,' but with no luck.

One day a fellow engine collector and restorer named Rudie read about my interest in (rusty old iron gold) engines in the June 1995 issue of GEM.

I had a couple of questions about a Sylvester and Cockshutt engines. He told me that for a few years now a group of engine enthusiasts came together on a farmyard of one of them, namely Earl, and they play with their rusty old iron gold engines for one day from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

In 1998 I decided to join them. I also asked my little boy to come along and see the big boys play with their old engines.

It took some persuasion but finally he came with me. We took a couple of stationary engines and a Simplicity walk-behind tractor with a cultivator along with us.
