Jerrys Old Engines in South Africa

New Year 2008 Crankup.

Here's what we did for New Year 2008. The engines were started at midnight and The 1928 Wolseley Type R - 6 H.P. ran until 1:45am. We only ran the Maytag for about 3/4's of an hour - it was making too much noise and we wanted to hear the Wolseley :-)

Myself, my  daughter Jacqui & her boyfriend Adolf and his 2 sons were present. Toasts were drank to all our engine friends and we also took a few moments to remember those who have passed on.

We wish all our engine friends a Very Happy and Prosperous 2008.

The Maytag running. For the benefit of certain friends
who insist that a Maytag does not run I took the photo without a flash.
Notice the blurred flywheel spokes as well as the oil drips below the muffler :-) Further proof can be obtained by clicking on the link below;
