Default New from Boise, Idaho

Hello everyone - my name is Doug and I live in Boise, ID. I don't currently have any antique engines, but I'm keeping an eye out for one. Forum member GarageGnome, who I know from a few other forums, got me interested in the hit and miss engines and then just last week another friend bought a Maytag Model 92, so I figured I better start searching I had seen them before, but only at the Western Idaho Fair.

It's not that I have a lack of projects. I have a 1963 CJ3B that I rebuilt and still have things to do on it, another 1953 CJ3B project that may or may not move forward. I'm also currently rebuilding a 1969 Ford Bronco. A few years ago, I rebuilt a late 60s or early 70s Homelite XL-12 chainsaw and have a few others laying around waiting for something to be done.

I'd really love to restore a Farmall Super M as my grandfather had one that he used on his farm. Since I live in town, that will most likely never happen - neighbors just wouldn't be impressed.

Here are a few pictures of my projects:

I look forward to learning from you all about antique engines! They are really cool!
