Default HVID Show at Coolspring Poll

I have pondered this for a bit and am willing to be a ringleader is there any interest in having a summer show of Hvid's at CPM? I would like to have a informal poll of possible amount of engines and namely different manufacturers of Hvid's that might be willing to come. There is nothing formal at this moment I am just seeing if there is interest. Thanks Kyle

The last one we had a couple of years ago was great! I'd like to see it happen again and will bring our 5 HP Model T Thermoil. Thanks for heading it up Kyle.

How about some suggestions folks? I will bring them up at our next board meeting in a couple of weeks.

Thanks

well Kleins would be a good one but there are already quite a few there and they're so damn heavy to move!!

Canadian engines may not fly that well but there are quite a few of them out there.

English and other "across the pond" stuff would be neat too.

Has Coolspring ever featured just Otto's Chris or was that covered in the flame ignition expo

Just about fell off my chair! Don't spoil the pleasure of looking at the Coolspring pics for me.



I wish you got themed shows over here there is a guy who has a themed open day which ranges from blackstone, hornsby, crossley, tangye, gardner... all the boring stuff! If we can mange to somehow not have an Associated theme at our open day it may be chicago engines for us this year with FBM, IHC and Aermotors in the dominant positions, thats a proper theme if you tried an American theme at a show over here it would just be doggy nelsons, fairbanks and amanco's with maybe a hercules as the star engine. I can't think how you wouldn't end up with the equivalent in America. Maybe pre-1910 should be a criteria, or even earlier CP need to keep the bar up right.

Yeaaahh, I guess there are quite a lot of exciting crossleys but they are not very often seen around. Obviously there are some nice tangyes too but they are a little numb considering the regular standards at coolsprings in my opinion. And I did mean it with an element of sarcasm although I do personally find them boring

You have engines on both sides of the fence right, but which is your favourite? IHC and Stickney or Tangye and Crossley?

Wink Re: HVID Show at Coolspring Poll

Don't worry , I meant it with some sarcasm as well!! ;-))
Been to Coolsprings a couple off times and it's a league off it's own...no way a private collector can "compete" with that!!
Favourite?
Hmm , hard to say!!
Really like our 20hp Famous and 12hp FM standard........but the 23hp Tangye and the big 94hp Crossley are very nice as well!!!

Now I must be honest , at Astle Park the rows&rows off "green" don't do it for me......
