A steady rain Saturday morning had the annual East Lk. Simcoe show off to a less than roaring start but enthusiasm was high with an excellent turnout of exhibitors, especially in the engine area.Stakker Bill Windsor and son Colin throw some energy into the Gilson Wizard. I last saw this engine at an auction sitting on a pallet along with a jumble of parts awaiting resurection. As you can see the Windsor men do some excellent work and the engine looks and runs great ! Take note of an excellent local engine, a Sylvester built in Lindsay Ontario and showing lots of original finish. Chuck Foster poses with his Dad Harold next to the Sausage Hopper Aeromotor, an excellent runner which we followed the restoration of here on the 'stak not too long ago. Sorry about the eyes Chuck, I should have photoshopped a set in for you
The tractor fans will like the Massey 4wd. There was a pair of them down from Northern Ontario but unfortunately headed to auction after the show. Lets hope the Ontario collectors will step up and keep these beauties here.
