This posting should be saved for future reference, to aid as a definition, for those who don't understand the expression: "Trying to put a high shine on a sneaker"......


And somehow, I'm not sure it's appropriate to name an old Craftsman with an aging TEC 5hp an "annihilator" of anything, regardless of how scary you've made the paint job.....

JnC,

I have seen my share of "chick magnet" or "cop magnet" vehicles over the years, but I have to admit, this is the first "Nerd Magnet" vehicle I have ever seen........

My Ariens 922008 it appears has that exact engine as a replacement - hasn't been cleaned up (yet) though.

I know some posters don't care too much for those double shaft Tec's - but if there's one constant with the two blowers I inherited from my father, it was how well that engine runs.

It's no monster for sure, but darned if that thing always starts on the first pull. I'm going to clean it up and repaint it (tastefully) this spring. It's gonna shine!

Hmm.. Now why didn't I think of doing something like this to MY snowblower? Somebody always seems to beat me to the great ideas.

Work fascinates me.
I can watch somebody work for hours...

meh, lame. (IMO)
If you are going to create a "zombie eliminator" snowblower, it at least needs to have some guts.
this one is pretty wussy..it's a low-end MTD/Craftsman. unworthy.
and I think the owner believes the paint scheme increases the value...it actually decreases it a lot.

Oh yeah...no offense intended towards the TEC engine....best part of the whole machine. Matter of fact, I just today pulled my old Noma (Murray) out of mothballs that has a Tecumseh 9hp. One pull and it started right up. They made some pretty reliable engines. A shame they're no longer around.


No....it's just that that guy with the goofy paint job tried to make the machine sound like it was such a beast. It'd be like someone putting flame decals on a '95 Honda Civic and trying to pass it off as qualified to run in the Daytona 500....
