Happy Turkey Day all! (To those of you who celebrate, that is! (: )

I wanted to get the pages up before festivities get crazy there or here! AND! Lookie! TWO things from the poster added in one page. /gasp I'm probably the only one who would remember that, but...those are her special...designed, red gloves! LOL

And yes...but what could that purplish glow at the bottom of the page be...hmmm?

Oh, they're not the same. The ones my brother in law had didn't go 'vroom' so much as 'BANG!BANG!BANG!BANG!BANG!BANG!BANG!BANG!' Stand to the left of the big one and you could feel the exhaust from almost a meter away! The small one could sort of 'vroom', but with the big one, it just wasn't a good idea to open the throttle more than a teeny bit! :) They were sort of narrow, upright and long, with the tines out the sides.

He had wheels with tires to put on the big one instead of the tines. He made this trailer to attach to it when the wheels were on, making a sort of articulated go-kart, steered by swinging the handlebars to either side. This is how I know it wasn't a good idea to open the throttle more than a teeny bit: I thought I'd see how fast it would go by openning the throttle a teeny bit more in each circuit of his garden. It was only about the third time when it tipped over! XD No-one got hurt. Well, my nephew got a few scratches, but I never did that again.

I guess the reason the big one had such a big engine, (500cc,) was for when the buldozer blade was attached.

Hm, looking at pictures, (searching for Rotavator) it's possible I mis-remembered and the big one always had wheels. I don't see anything that looks familiar, though, not even when I add 1960s to the search, guessing at the machines' ages.
