A Beautiful Day in Montreal
Overcast and 68 F or 20 C
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."
What's interesting about these motors is the fact that they're at least 57 years old, and they still work. When you consider how many motors were made at that time for hunters and fishermen, it's great to see people collecting and repairing them. That was a time in America when "Made In America" meant something, and Americans were proud of that.
Wh's also interesting is the great condition that these motors are in. I'm not sure of Art repainted the exterior of the Evinrude shown below.
