2008 Featured Engine
The Simplicity Engine
    This is the late Alden Piper of Leominster, Massachusetts, and the 8 horsepower
Simplicity engine that he owned.     
The engine itself was isolated from the picture and "artwork" was created from it. This is how Alden's engine appears on the 2008 CMSGMA Show Button.
   Simplicity Engines also come in smaller sizes.
2008 Featured Tractor
Ford Tractors
    The tractor illustrated on our plaque for the 2008 show is this Ford, Model 8N, which was owned by the late
Alden Piper.
Alden Piper
1921 - 2007
    The Ford 8n was made from 1948 to 1952.
Alden's 8n has some extra hardware on it
to accommodate a front end loader.     
We selected a good picture of Alden on his tractor and stripped away the background. "Two color" artwork was then created and the plaque for the 2008 show
looks like this.
    This is a 1953 Ford "Jubilee". It commemorated the 50th anniversary of the Ford Motor Company.
