New member here, thought I'd show off my father's '60 Ariens Imperial. He bought it new in 1960 at the age of 14 so he could do more mowing jobs. It had it's first rebuild in '75 (I think) and the second in approx '92-'93. It's not the original engine anymore, but he tried to keep things looking period correct as best possible. I have many pics of it throughout the years, but these are the most recent.
The last pic is (bottom) me next to it in 1976 and (top) my father and daughter in a parade in 2015.
