| September/October 2000

There's lots of color in this issue, and we hope you like it. Our advertising manager, Judy Whiteside, attended the large George Archer auction held this spring, and brought back lots of good pictures of some of the rare and unusual engines that were sold there. Judy will again be selling books and subscriptions (and t-shirts and hats!) at the large and well known Tri-State Antique Show in Portland, Indiana, late in August. If you get your magazine before the show and you'll be attending, be sure to stop by and say hello!

There are two small items in this issue about engine and part theft. This seems to be a growing problem for collectors, so beware that there may be others out there coveting your treasures! Just as the day of the unlocked car and the open back screen door are coming, sadly, to an end, so may you need to take more precautions with your barns and garages.

If your club has been out of our directory for a couple of years, you may receive a mailing from us asking for updated information. If so, please respond, it is very helpful in keeping our lists up-to-date! And enjoy all the early fall shows and auctions!
