I have shown engines at Portland for over 20 years. Common ones to rare ones. I have been away for quite a time in the flea market, leave them at night and never have had a problem. I do not think you have to worry.

Ditto on John Davidsons reply, We been going for 23 years. No problems so far . You do not camp with your engines . All engines and tractors, venders etc. are in the fairgrounds. You camp across the road on the club grounds where the swap meet is held. No displays are allowed in the club grounds during the show. Joe Morris
