Yes, we are here!

In times like these our hobbies become lifesavers. At GAS ENGINE MAGAZINE and FARM COLLECTOR, we have been tracking down the most interesting and rare vintage farm machines and collections for more than 80 years combined! That includes researching and sourcing the best books on collectibles available anywhere. Our online store is open and we are here to answer any questions you might have. Our customer service staff is available Monday through Friday from 8a.m.-5p.m. CDT. We can be reached at 1-800-888-9098 or by email. Stay safe!

'Show Season' is in full gear by this time of year, and we hope you are all enjoying yourselves wherever you go.

I hate to do this, but we have a word of caution to offer you this month.

It seems that there are some unscrupulous individuals who use our WANTED ads as a source for illegal activity. Without citing specifics, we would just like to say that we welcome your reports of any unethical or illegal activities which you may find occurring in transactions with other collectors or those posing as collectors. While there is no way for us to monitor individuals' behavior, nor to provide victims with any specific remedy, we always appreciate it when our subscribers call our advertising department to report questionable activity. And, it seems appropriate to caution you at this time, that sending sizable sums of money to people unknown to you in anticipation that they will send by return mail the object you have been seeking, is not always advisable. Everyone will agree that engine collectors are a fantastic group of people, but it never hurts to seek some greater assurance that a stranger's word is good. We can't help a great deal here we can tell you whether an individual is a subscriber, or an advertiser, and whether we have had other complaints about him, but that just may be enough to prevent harm!

We're running our popular Warehouse Sale again this summer, even though we've greatly diminished our stock of back issues. If you're looking to stock up on back issues at bargain prices, though, see page 51!
