In reality we do have things similar today. No bubbles but cabs. Look at some of the small scuts being built. Probably offer more luxuries too.! That thing may of had AC but probably still had rope start.

Just having a little fun with the topic. Note the sarcasm..👍
I agree on the bubble but ~ It has its own electric generating system for operating running lights, a radio telephone, air conditioning and even a cooling system to provide a chilled drink on a hot day. ~ So i'd think with all that i was electric start LOL ~~oldguy~~

This was the pic I posted in June on another forum. Found it somewhere on the web, but no idea where. Might've been on Pinterest?

The man and woman are wearing the same clothes in both pictures. The second one says you can run errands in this? As in drive to the store for more Windex?

If it's FREE, it's for ME!

ALWAYS remember to remove the spark plug wire from the plug before sticking your hand in the machine!!!! The fingers you save could be your own.
