Engines Online

Unless you haven't been paying attention, you know that the digital age is here and here to stay. That's a good thing for engine collectors, because as the Internet builds, so do the number of sites dedicated to old iron. And with the launch of our new online photo gallery, cu.GasEngineMagazine.com, engine collectors have a new place to share and view engines belonging to collectors around the world.

Our new site has two great sides. The first is called "You CU," and it's the place for you to create and share photo galleries of your engines, the shows you go to, restoration projects, club gatherings and more. It's also the place to find photo galleries created by readers just like you, where you can check out their engine collections from the comfort of your favorite desk chair!

The other side of CU is called "We CU," and it's the place to see photos from past events that we couldn't get into the magazine. It's also where we post great photos not featured in the magazine and, from time to time, photos of engines we're planning on featuring in future issues.

And to celebrate our new photo sharing website, we've created a special contest photo gallery for a "Best of Show" photo feature that we'll be running in an upcoming issue of Gas Engine Magazine.

The idea is simple enough: We want to see the very best of your summer show photos, and we'll pick through and publish the best of the bunch. Turn to page 45 for more information.

Registration is free, so visit CU today to register and post your engine and show photos. And don't forget: When you're making your own gallery, be sure to create captions and tags for each photo by clicking on them once they have been uploaded. Captions and tags help viewers learn more about your photos while also picking up critical search engine responses that attract new visitors.
