You couldn't get a clue during the clue mating season in a field full of horny clues if you smeared your body with clue musk and did the clue mating dance.

I like old stuff like that. I don't want to have to use it but I like looking at it. I marvel at some of the contraptions I've seen.

I was once up in an old Amish barn and discovered an ice box, a wall size old fashion ice box. It was one of the coolest things I've seen. Had I been building a home I would have bought that puppy and had it modernized. It was only a couple thousand dollars. I took a picture, I hope I still have it.

I like looking at old stuff too, and would put that lawnmower on display!

It certainly would be a conversation piece.

It's a beautiful piece of machinery. I feel goofy even saying that. I think it's awesome, Cars. I'm going to show one of my guy friends who would appreciate something like that.

I found the old ice box. It's not nearly as big as it's been in my mind all this time.

Cars, You posted the introductory model in 1951. Below is the 1959 model. It was first sold in Hollywood and used regularly on Joan Crawford's property. I may be able to find a publicity photo of Christina Crawford pushing it. It was apropos for is time.

Joan was a real slave driver and Christina was known to rebel.

In 1959 they thought everything looked better with fins. It was paying homage to the dawning of the space age and American hubris. Sputnik and Telstar and the turbine engine soon followed. Women started getting breast augmentation and MWS bought his first penis enlarger.

Speaking of "American Hubris", Donald Trump comes to mind.
