Frank Morton is a retired master mechanic, an individualist, and a very determined man. His hobby is rebuilding antique engines and he pursues the avocation with a great deal of determination.

He is also engaged in a hot-and-cold war with his neighbors and the Town of Westover and he shows equal determination in this pursuit.

His front yard, basement and house are filled with old gasoline and steam engines and the parts, bits and pieces used to repair and rebuild them.

To a visitor, who is interested in ancient machinery, Morton's yard is rather fascinating.
