Belltown Engine Show
26 April 2009
It ahs been a number of years since I last visited this show. Even though it is very close to my home it usually comes and goes before I notice it on the calendar. But this year I was on top of things for a change and made it over to the show grounds.
I ran into Norm Jones and Ray HasBrouck who were both displaying their engines. Norm was set up with Russ Steeves and Rich Hubbard but they were off about the show grounds when I was by their display so I didn't get to say hi to them.
Belltown is a car, engine, "stuff" and other sort of show so there was a lot to look at.
