Mansfield MA - February 16th, 2013
The Yankee Chapter had another great meet at the Mazda Technical Center in Mansfield MA - thanks to Ernie D. for hosting! Once again the weather was a little threatening the night before, but only a dusting of snow and on & off flurries came of it, temps were in the high 30s. (The weekend before we had been dumped on with parts of New England from CT to ME receiving up to 3 feet of snow!) Nevertheless, a few members were concerned and didn't make the meet so attendance was a bit off - but 35 folk's did attend and had fun.
There was a good selection of stuff changing hands. Off the top of my head, tops were at least two Fambeaus, a very early Champion, two early 30's Evinrudes and a Johnson 200. Lots of classic OMCs, (a couple of mint 10hp and 18hp motors), and parts, a Martin or two and quite a bit more hardware and boat parts than we typically see. (This writer picked up a nice vintage Air Guide compass "new in-the-box" from Ken H. for $5)
Warming up inside was great, lots of hot coffee and donuts. Fun for us auto enthusiasts was our host's discussion and display of old and new auto technology. Those of us staying late got a glimpse into the current state of automotive engineering - it was very informative and enlightening.
Here are just a few photos, thanks again to Ernie for the meet and the pictures!
