This isn't a photo but a video. I would love to have this guy as a neighbor.....as long as our houses were 500 yards apart!

I wonder if that second Pratt is running on propane? Wonderful!

I was just standing not 50 feet from a pair of those motors running this past Saturday at the Dream Machines show. ("those" motors, large radials, don't know anything about Identifying exactly which ones).
