| August/September 1994

Back in March, we reported a complaint from a reader who thought there were too many tractor stories in the magazine, and we invited other opinions. Well, we didn't hear from a lot of you on this issue, but most of those who did write told us to keep doing what we're doing, as they collect both tractors and engines. We really appreciate the feedback, and encourage you to let us know how you feel about GEM whenever the mood strikes you we want to know what you think!

We were happy to see that this month, the first in some time, there is no 'In Memoriam' column.

Last spring, we sponsored a popular tour to England which included the Tatton Park Rally, one of Britain's largest gas engine shows. Gail Knauer, our associate editor, went along on this trip and has reported on it in this issue. We've added more color pages than usual, to help convey this story. We are expecting that Mr. Wendel will be leading another European tour for our readers in 1995, this time on 'The Continent 'let us know if you wish to be on the mailing list for this trip.
