NEWMAN -- This Kid to Know wanted to make an engine work and he knew he was the guy to do it. Chad Dillon loves fixing old stuff. One antique engine caught his eye. He bought a 1925 Fairbanks Morse engine for $800.

The teen says he likes its uniqueness and he showed it off at the Brocton Spring Festival. Chad says he knows not many kids are into stuff like this, that's why he says it's cool. Chad says he would like to use it as an air compressor one day.
