    Micro,

    Thanks for sharing the show pics.

    Looks very similar to the NAMES show.

        Thanks for sharing the photos, I didn't get to see all that much while there. I hardly made it out of the booth this year but I plan to make up for it at NAMES.

          I see you got some pictures of my engines. Thanks for posting them. It was a great show. Huge variety of engines and such. I only got out twice to walk around on Saturday as I was busy answering questions and running my engines most of the day.

            I wanted to go see the Deusenberg,especially to see the engine run. Couldn't get anyone to help w/driving. Maybe next year.

            Anyone ever see the running Merlin engine some years ago? An old guy with white hair made it. Beautiful job,with a P-51 type model prop on it. Engine about 12" long. I saw it run,but it didn't run smoothly due to some oil problem they were having.

              I know they're small engines, but there are a lot of them... by the end of the day is there a looming smog cloud in the rafters of the convention center?

                  Thanks for taking the time to share with all of us that couldn't be present.

                  The last picture just blew me away! A gas powered pogo stick! I had never heard of such a thing, very cool..........

                    For some background regarding the pogo stick's builder go to(http://winfield.50megs.com/tripod/HerbOttaway.htm) or better yet google "Herb Ottoway". He was a good friend of my dad's, competitors and compatriots, building 125cc racing bikes in the 50's, farting around with traction steam engines, and such. Herb helped me get a good grade on a high school term paper about Stanley Steamers.

                    He built an Indian six motorcycle, (http://greasykulture.blogspot.com/20...ndian-six.html) that he liked to park at a meet, blend into the crowd and listen to the experts tell "They didn't make many." I saw it once and would defy anyone to tell where the cases were joined.


                    His steam collection was large and included many one of a kinds.

                    And he was a great guy.
