Project finished

Finished my first rebuild of a Hit n Miss engine. It's a 1925 Hercules 1 3/4 hp.
I built a new cart for it using dovetail joinery.
Used DuPont auto paint (3 sprayed coats, over primer).
Starts and runs like a bandit.

Looks cool. What do you do with something like that? I'm sure there's some show circuit or something like that. It's big at our county fair every year.
