Picture gallery...cars, trucks , gasifiers, older and newer history

Göran, I’m impressed. Does your house have its own library, as well as parlour and drawing room?

Lovely girl standing on the bumper. Hmm…I guess she’s not as good looking nowdays :thinking:

Edit: Also, very interesting charcoal/wood comparison.

Haha, actually we started to make a spare bedroom into a “hobby”/ library/ computer/ “museum”-room, not a priority though.
I got a lot of technical books everywhere, would be nice to get them in one place, also a little “woodgas museum” (no gasifiers or big stuff) is planned. I don’t know how to describe or translate “gengashörna” better?

I like the guy with the black hands. I used to think that was something to do with the Mafia until I met Jacob North and saw all of Marcus’s videos. :wink:

Tom I was forced by the Wife to gift a-way my black hat I’d had stitched with 'Black Hands Freedom". Not politically correct she said. Bound to cause trouble.
Ha! I’d thought that was the whole point.

It is a great idea! We might call it a ‘shrine’ with a fairly loose interpretation, but I am sure it will be similar to your “small” chainsaw corner. :slight_smile:

It will be a corner room exhibit in his house of the fine arts of gasification stuff and good reading. This is what Goran will have for all to come and visit. Well he did invited us.

Hey Goran picture up hard straight backed chairs and lengths of ankles chains bolted to the walls of any wishing to “come” ,then read, your library collection.
Even offer note pads and colored pencils.
Have one of those big obvious scales with a sign that all will be weighted in and out for the display parts fondlers.

Sure give them lots and lots of free coffee. Then charge for toilet usages.

Yeah. Yeah. I am trying to be light and humorous. But monthly Shop meeting ups winter of 2010/11 there was always that individual collecting souvenirs. Then would be the pocket camera person photoing all with a buddy holding up scale rulers.

And these were much more than just an expected small percentage of humans always on the easy-finding prowl.
Woodgas attracts a lot of change-the-world; make-my-fortune; find-easy-I-can-present-to-others to earn my sainthood way into heaven types.

And print cars using wood gas on a 3D printer. I would love to hold a V-10 model in my hands. :slight_smile:

Думаю, та милая девушка сейчас может выглядеть гораздо лучше того древесного газогенератора и автомобиля с тем бампером.

Главное иметь хороший газогенератор - а хорошую и милую девушку можно в любые времена найти. :wink:

P.S. Google переводчик открывается с огромным трудом на медленном Интернете… Позже переведу на английский язык. А вот DOW работает гораздо лучше, чем Google!

The model trucks (at least the body style, but I would suspect most of those that even have an engine would be V-8’s) are readily available on US ebay in everything from 1:64 (Matchbox size) to 1:24 (traditional build it yourself) scale. I suspect the same is true for Ukrainian ebay.

But just like in real life, you’re on your own when it comes to the gasifier.

Just found this, my theory is Wayne Keith has found the secret of woodgas-powered time traveling… :thinking:

It was dangerous and forbidden by law to start a woodgas car inside a garage. By parking on these wooden wedges, it was just to release the parking brake in the morning, and the car rolled out the garage to be lit and started.

Woodgas-powered engine heater, the “barbecue sled” was placed under the engine.
