Shop Amazon – New Year New You

I attended the annual Gas Engine Meet in Dublin, NH in September of 2015 to see antique tractors and a variety of hit-and-miss engines in operation.  These things are fun to watch as they explode and spin. There were other delights as well including heat engines (Stirling). It was  look back at a time when technology was a lot easier to understand.
