I wonder if that Forester door comes with the deal! How can someone expect to sell an item based on an ad like that?

Been watching the "midgets" race a little over 45 year's and have yet seen one of these push off a on-track car

P.S. For those that don't know, these midgets don't use transmissions or starters, so they need to be push started and once running it's "lets line them up and go green"!

They do that with the super sprints here but they have to use a truck...


13.000 sec around the 3/8 they move and put on a good show aswell!

As I read the ad, he doesn't even claim that unit will go 50. He claims that the TRANSMISSION can be coaxed into going 50 mph....in a little racer!!

So, it's 375 for a USED transmission!!

I think my favorite line is "It has been disassembled." No kidding.

From what I can see I think that the mower is Minneapolis Moline? And if he has all the parts to reassemble it, I think it would be a good buy.

The best part of it is that the disassenbly process is already done for the sandblasting and painting.
