Couldn't help it, this just came to mind with the FC postings.

Anybody know what was used for the chassis on the first Zamboni Ice Refinishing Machines in the 50's??

Here's a few of pix of these fine machines! Some early one's are flatties, later production machines are 3B's, probably because the F-head motor made more power needed to run the accessory drives.













Isn't this great??

Hee, Hee!!:D :D

Here's my personal favorite, since I'm a diehard Wings fan.



And then a project Zamboni. Boy, I'd love to find one of these!!!! Don't know what the Hell I'd do with it, but.......that's not important, it's a Jeep!!:D



Yeah, I know, it's getting late....G'night all!

Hey Scott!
I go to an antique power meet in Indiana every year. They always have sawmills and even had a shake shingle machine running off an old truck.
Cool stuff!!

You'll get me going on those things next!!!! I'd like to see what he did!
