I know some of you have an abundance of snow right now so I'll offer an "in season" snow blower picture. Something tells me it would be a little too small for the larger snows. This is a David Bradley Rotostick. Click on the link to see what attachments were offered for this power unit.

I am a David Bradley walk behind tractor collector and tried to buy a rotostick once or twice on ebay but no luck. I did get a DB electric chainsaw though, works awesome, but no pics of it yet, that will change soon.

I call it the "Chestermobile" because the guy that built it was named Chester. The main body is/was an OLD round top, single door refrigerator.

Chester [the builder] devised this rig in about 1980 for his grandson who was suffering from cancer. At age 13 Dr.s took the boys right leg off. The car is designed with no controls for the right leg. Power is from a 12.5 horse Onan twin. A belt with idler transfers power to a 1929 Chevy three speed tranny with a driveshaft to the rearend. The rear is from a golfcart or cushman Truckster. It has a Ford Model T front axle, hood, and steering colum. The front axle has been narrowed. This car had chrome motorcycle fenders on it but they didn't look right so I made more appropriate looking fenders from scratch. I used a bead roller to bend the beads into the fenders making it look like Model T fenders. There was an old chrome grille on the front that didn't fit the opening so I took it off and installed a radiator from a 1969 I-H Scout and it fit the hole perfectly. The headlights came with the car and are stainless steel so they shine good. The wheels are from motorcycles. I have top bows and hope to get the seat and top upholstered someday. I found another motorcycle wheel/tire at the city dump and mounted it on the back as a spare.
The young man this car was built for passed away in 1982 at age 15.

That sucks, but hey, he did have one cool little car. I like what you have done with it to make it look like more than a toy. cheers
