Nothing Like Old Iron!

by Michael Glenn, President, Mohawk Hudson Chapter, AOMCI Antique Outboard Motor Club Inc.

I’ve always said if one person makes it, two collect it, and such is the case with old iron (old outboard motors). The Antique Outboard Motor Club Inc, (AOMCI), an international organization based in the United States has over 3,000 members, most in the US. There are many reasons people collect old motors, some of the most common are a person’s desire to relive fond memories from the past, of a simpler time when summers were spent out on the lake, drowning a worm in that favorite spot, or having that motor that Grandpa had that you admired.
