While going thru my old stack of Popular Mechanics I came across this advert from January 1949 and thought you might not have seen it yet.Love these old ads.Says they had 46 years of manufacturing.Cheers Mike

Well it may drive like a car,but the handles remind me of a motorcylce with tiny wheels.It always amazes me how small the engines they were using back then because if you see a older subdivision the home lots were much much bigger than they are today.
