Antique Powerland

Field review by the editors.

Brooks, Oregon

Neighboring pre-fab metal buildings, spread across several acres, comprise Antique Powerland. The name may invoke images of steampunk robots clanking across the landscape, but Powerland is in fact populated by old tractors and road-building equipment and other bygone era road contraptions. One museum-building is devoted to trucks, another to street cars, another to cars and motorcycles, another to trains. Not a lot of attention paid to design; it's all about the machines.
