About Me

Do you love the smell of two-stroke in the morning? Are you a fan of small engines and automobiles? Well, these things describe me. Outboards were my first real interest followed in later years by mopeds and then cars. (okay, tractors, lawn-mowers & I would love to get my hands on an airplane!)

Since I was a kid, I have not been happy unless I had a little grease under my nails. I got my first outboards when I was about 9 ( 30+ years ago), a 1958 Elgin 2hp, and bought my first car at age 13. I couldn't drive it LEGALLY, but I could sure take it apart and get my hands good and cut up. It was a 1964 VW Beetle. I have also tinkered with antique yard equipment, motorcycles and even some heavy machinery.

A good weekend at yardsales!

Looking around my site, you'll see my various collections along with data, some stories, and hopefully, some helpful information. I recall how great it was when I found the one person in the world who seemed to have information on a weird Russian outboard I had just found and could not even identify, so I hope I can offer that same type of interesting background and guidance to others.

** This is not a commercial site, no cars, motors, parts, or literature is for sale. **

I am a member of several clubs, all of which have been more than helpful in my various projects. First, there is the Antique Outboard Motor Club. A great resource for my Subaru 360 restoration project is the Subaru 360 Drivers Club, and for our Volvo there is the Volvo Club of America.
