Tractors and Engines

In 1988, we stopped at Casa De Fruta, on CA Hwy. 152, to look at some buffalo. While there, Bill heard a sound (pop chuca chuka) in the distance. He later found this to be the now-too-familiar sound of one-cylinder engines. This grew into an interest in not only one-cylinder gas engines, but also antique-gasoline tractors.
