Default First engine for the new decade!

Hi,

Okay, technically it arrived New Years Eve......

..... and it seems to be a little confused after crossing the equator.

Its a Gemmer Gas Engine, from the USA.

What did you get as a first engine for this decade ? Okay, I know its only day 2.

Regards,

Wayne

So Wayne, when you live down under, do the trees grow down instead of up?????? Brian and Audry

Very nice engine there Wayne.
I wonder how long it takes to relise that it no longer resides in the USA and inverts itself.

Hi,

Mick, I think the engine might be a bit overwhelmed in your shed with all those big horizontals.

Cobbadog, if it doesn't invert itself, I will threaten to send it to Micks.

And on a final note, Brian and Audry if you were to look from where your standing, the trees would be growing down instead of up.

Regards,

Wayne
