Had a great day at Lang's open house on Saturday. Took a few pictures, well in fact a lot. Thought I'd share some.
We got there about 9:30 AM, a few cars were already there:
Great looking event, I would be there if I lived 3,126 miles closer
Very nice pictures. Wondering what that green thing is on the running board of the '14 on next to last pic.
Who is that with the hack in the second picture? I'm not generally a big fan of those, but that one looks great!
You like his whiskers!
Richard . It looks like an oil transport can like dealers or service stations used for bulk oil.....
So whats the story on the old smoke stack?
Im about an hour and twenty min away from langs, I had to work, and I was grumpy at everyone all day because I couldn't go! maybe next time!
The neat ice cream truck has me hankering for a big bowl of it now, and I don't have a lick of it in the place. Trying to deflate the spare tire!!
Very nice pics of a lot of very nice vehicles. Looked like a great time, wish I was there.
At least the missus and I got out yesterday for a spin in the '20, and while she was gone today I got out in the '12 and stirred up quite a bit of excitement along the route. Sure creates a lot of attention.
The smoke stack is a relic of the original boiler for the building. The building started with a very large steam boiler that burn wood waste then it was converted to oil with a 15 gallons an hour nozzle. that system has been replaced with four household boilers each burning less then a gallon an hour each.
The building was built late 1890s and started life as a furniture factory making high chairs. it was then purchased by Temple Stewart and used to finish furniture until the 1980s. It then became an art galley. The art galley sold the building and it became a pub bar and event hall which only lasted a year and half. We then we purchased the building about a year and half ago. We spent that time getting the building ready and have been working out of the new building for 4 weeks
Modular heating system...probably about as efficient as you can get...especially if they're set up to come on line as demand requires only using as many/few boilers as necessary.
Yea we reconfigured it to 2 sets of 2 boilers from single zones per boiler and got sum savings.
