The stories, happy buyers at the dealerships, first dates, flats, driving lessons, dropped ice cream cones, road trips, drive in movies, children driving solo, A&W window trays.....I could go on and on.

Harry Miller 1875-1943

His engines dominated American oval-track racing for almost half a century. Most of the speed records which there were to be had on land and water were held at one time or another by those engines. He created the school of American thoroughbred engine design, which was faithfully followed by those who sought to outdo him. He was the originator, in the United States, of the racing car as an art object. He had a passion for metalwork and machinery that soared above and beyond all practical consideration.

I took a ride

Man in green shirt owned the car and when I took the photo he asked if I wanted a ride around Havana. We climbed in with him in the back seat and other fellow drove. He explained he'd lost his license due to drunk driving so his friend drove. Car was beautiful but only ran and stayed together with car love.

The fleet of maintenance machinery that keeps our nation’s railways and roadways clear comprises some of the coolest machines out there today. The Union Pacific Railroad’s three rotary snowplows are no exception. Built in the 1920s, the rotary snow plows originally ran on steam, but were converted to diesel in the 1950s.

1904 Steam Traction Engine

Nichols and Shepard Steam traction Engines were built in Battle Creek, Michigan from 1848-1929. I believe this one is a 1918 model. Weighing over 11,000 pounds, powered by wood or coal they traveled at 3 mph. This was taken at the annual steam show in Baraboo WI where over 500 steam powered tractors and construction equipment powered by white hot steam, plenty of black smoke and driven by hard men, gather for a 5 day event.
