Default New guy from Indiana

Hi gents, I happened upon this site, and really like what I have found so far.Over the years I have sold off most of my stuff, but still have a JD 1 1/2hit and miss.

Being new, I thought I would toss in a link to an awesome collection (not mine) that has a LOT of all.
Neat
Old
Stuff

http://urbanindiana.com/in_mauzy/in_mauzy.html

(The good stuff is in a few pages)

I never knew of the place, and the info is a few years old. "BUT" I thought the photos were neat to see.
I 'think' I saw that chevy dumptruck with the tree growing thru it on CL a while back(?)
has it been cleaned/sold out?

I have lived around Jay & Blackford Co. all my life but don't remember seeing a place like that. But the road signs and buildings are at Redkey. Sure would like to see this place. Ron

Was out to Mauzy's place 20 years ago. Quite an interesting tour. I wonder if it is still there, as he would have to be in his 90's by now?

Kieth is somewhat of a legend in the steam community and was still collecting a few years ago. I visited him about 12 years ago and was amazed at his level of energy, he was loading a large dozer on the lowboy to go to a excavation job. He was still working every day with no plans to slow down. He's normally publicity shy as he dosen't need too many visitors under foot. Also he has had the same problem as the rest of us with copper and scrap thieves so is careful about too much publicity. A lot of the large stationary engines were part of demolition contracts he had with the various power plants and were put in the pasture for storage, as he says this stuf would have been scraped long ago if he hadn't gotten it and he is quite aware that some day a lot of it will end up there but there are a lot of rare units that he's saved that are one of a kind left that will make it worth the effort. One of the collector magazines did a article on his collection a few years back. F.J.W.

Sorry I'm not at liberty to disclose where. He likes his privacy, but is a very nice guy to talk to after he gets to know you. Like I said sorry, about not giving his location but back then he ask not to let people know.
