    Default 1927 Indian and other cool stuff coming up at auction in Maine

    I'm not associated with this, nor profiting from it. Except that if one of you please buys this Indian... I won't be tempted!

    This came across my transom this evening. It looks like it has some neat stuff in it, even beyond the Chief.

    Again, I'm just passing this on. I don't have any affiliation.

    Cheers and please someone buy that Chief so I am not tempted to.

    Charlie was a pilot, a pioneering hot air balloonist, and a dedicated environmentalist. He founded the Alternative Vehicle Regatta, at Mount Washington, New Hampshire and the Ten Gallon 500, which were contests demonstrating alternative vehicles and fuel economy. In 1977, he purchased the hydro-powered Brown’s Mill in Dover-Foxcroft, where he developed a business hatchery and began a career as an alternative energy promoter. As owner and proprietor of the Dover Stove Company in Sangerville, he innovated with wood-burning technology. He invented the “TWERP,” a trash-to-energy incinerator which he installed internationally. He curated an alternative vehicle museum and authored The Adjustment, a cautionary tale about a post-petroleum world. He worked tirelessly to educate those interested on environmental issues, particularly, in his later years, climate change.

    I could not find an e-mail address, but I am sure some Google would turn it up. This appeared on the Vermont Auto Enthusiasts e-mail blast. So they may have more. Sorry, all I have.

    Cheers,

    Sirhr
