Pictured above is my 'All Purpose Steam Truck'. I am getting up steam to go for one last ride before putting it away for the winter. Using a 5 HP boiler and a 4 HP engine, I can get up to 10 M.P.H. I often use it for cutting firewood, grain grinding, and a little steam cleaning. It is very popular at the Shows and seems that every young person at the shows wants to ride - of course - the parents ride along too. I am in the process of building a new improved one and hope to model it after an English steam truck. With the gas shortage, steam may come back in style again.
