Talking New guy from Connecticut..

Hey guys! I'm Bill. I live in Seymour. I'm just a working guy who loves all things mechanical,,, The smoke, the grease, the smell. You get the picture.. My life is basically a live episode of family guy, who plays with old cars.. I've got a 49 Chevy coupe & a 51 ford tudor with a 302 in it.

I like old tractors & hit & miss engines. I've never owned either but I'd really like to own a hit & miss engine. I've always thought their sound was very soothing,, almost thereputic if you will,, since I first heard them at the county fairs as a child. So I'd like to thank you all for having me here & I'm looking forward to learning some things & possibly sharing my knowledge gained working on old flathead Contenentals in the shop.

I'd like to hear from guys in my area as I'm not in the local antique engine loop, even if there is such a thing, but like every other hobby i'm sure there is. Ya know to make contacts & see what is going on.

I look forward to hearing from you & thanks againg for having me.

Billy

Welcome Aboard Billy!

You came to the right place w/ your interest. Now just got to find an old engine to play with...which won't be hard to do.

Good Luck!

Hi Rob, Bill, and John
I am also Bill and grew up in Seymour. I currently live in Naugatuck but am in the process of moving back to Seymour as this is where my business is located. I have about 20 or 25 engines. Welcome to the site, you'll love it. If you haven't been up to Kent for the engine show and museum, I recommend going. Just google CAMA (Connecticut Antique Machinery Assoc.)
