LOL A riding lawn mower with a chebby 350!!!

[IMG]/forums/images/icons/laugh.gif[/IMG] Has anyone else ever seen this done? A guy at a local car show brought his on a trailer. When I first looked at it on the trailer, I didn't even notice the 350 and the headers sticking out the sides. [IMG]/forums/images/icons/shocked.gif[/IMG] It had wheelie bars and everything. [IMG]/forums/images/icons/cool.gif[/IMG] I don't know if he's able to actually drive it, because when he drove it off the trailer, he did it reeeaaaaally slow, and drove the same speed all the way across the parking lot. When he parked it, and then revved it up, the thing twisted like it was going to break in half!! It was very...uhh...different. (and so was the owner [IMG]/forums/images/icons/laugh.gif[/IMG]) I should have pics by this weekend. [IMG]/forums/images/icons/smile.gif[/IMG]

Yeah, there's a guy down here with a 383 stroker in a Cub Cadet. It does run and drive under it's own power but the tranny thing is goofy (I think that's what he said) so he can't go very fast.

Cool! That's another thing I was wondering about. How does the tranny setup work? Anyone know? Sounds weird...er, I mean, interesting. [IMG]/forums/images/icons/tongue.gif[/IMG]

I can pull the front wheels of the ground with my 15.5 horse craftsman. I just slap it up into "rabbit" and dump the clutch.

I have a 460/C6 in storage in my garage.......Hmmmmm, could be my next project

I prefer twin turbofan jet engines on my lawnmowers....but they are a little weak...talking to NASA about getting some of those solid rocket boosters they use on the shuttle, but the phone keeps getting disconnected....you think NASA would have a better phone system I mean sheeze...

I'd go with a Toro Self-Step ( i think thats what its called) ive had mine for 5 years and it runs great, the good thing about it is that the speed adjusts to how fast you walk so you don't have to worry about adjusting the speed and all that.

I snapped up another lawn mower today as it was selling for a good price, I intend to sell the previous one this summer. This new one is a Qualcast Classic 43S with 17" blade...

A few years back there was a John Deere Gator with a small jet engine for sale on EBay, The owner found room under the bed for an APU. The add said it was for "Exhibition Use Only". Seems it would do 70 MPH in forward and in reverse. Looked pretty neat it had a 8 inch tail pipe sticking out the side of the body just in front of the rear tire.
