Restored oil engine a nod to family heritage
Name: Ron Creed.
Make, model and year: 1912 Blackstone oil engine.
How long have you had it? It's been in the family since 1912.
What upgrades have you done to it? Totally restored it from a pile of rusty iron and steel.
Would you ever trade it in? No.
Is this your dream? If not what is? It's not my dream engine, but I like to preserve our family heritage. My dream plane is a P51 Mustang.
How do you look after it? Once restored, it looks after itself.
