    Some where, over the last few weeks, I saw a picture, in an unrelated article, of a small gas powered lawn mower that was 1930's art deco design. "rocket pods" for wheel covers, I believe a flying saucer approach on the engine cover. Really a neat looking piece and it looks like it was made/used that way!!! Ring any bells as to what site it was in? BILL RINALDI

    Damn! now I'm going to be thinking about that the rest of the day. I remember the mower but not where I saw it.

    I think that was Moriarity's. Can't remember what thread it was in.

    It was on the HAMB, and I'm sure it was Moriarity.

  6. I think he also included it in his "Cleaning out the garage" thread.

    Married young in 1957. We had a small home and small lot. My first mower was a reel type push mower. At a yard sale I found a reel type gas engine mower. Put a stake in the ground and hooked a clothes line rope to it. I sat in the shade and watched my lawn get mowed.
    I wonder what happened to that mower?

    Is this a lawn mower or a floor polishing machine? The same group of junk hunters also unearthed a "Fly Mow". It was similar to a conventional push mower except it had no wheels. The blade functioned like a hovercraft and it floated on a cushion of air.
