The Recoil Kid

| 2/8/2012 12:16:00 PM

Everyone here at Gas Engine Magazine is very impressed with Owen Williams, the 8-year-old collector featured in the April/May 2012 Young Iron. While he's the youngest person we've ever featured in Young Iron, he's been collecting for years and his collection already totals 19 engines.

And on top of that, he's taken his collection online by making and sharing videos on YouTube. Below, he gets his Briggs & Stratton 5S with straight pipe running. 


You can see more of Owen's videos at the Recoil Kid Channel on YouTube.
