Yesterday felt like a good day to blow off some steam, so we fired up our 1909 Stanley Model R roadster. We had a little issue with dirty nozzles and had to clean them a couple times to get it fired up. This is what happens when you flood it and have to burn it out to get it ready to fire again.
Whenever you fire up a steam car, it attracts a crowd. We had at least 20 people come out of the museum when they heard that we were firing up the Stanley. Only a few had the courage to stand close.
If you find this interesting, make sure that you keep up on this blog site to see when we are going to fire up our steam cars next season. And remember that this may be the best way to let off steam, out in the back lot alone......
