Driving to the store after the bombogenesis cleaup - I think I spotted an oldie

I did my final cleanup of the EOD stuff this morning, and while driving to the supermarket, I think I spotted an oldie that someone was using to dig out.
I had a pair of Jacobsen Sno-Burst 2-cycle machines in the late 70's & early 80's (hand-me-down gifts from relatives), and I drove past someone using what looked like 1 of those, but in yellow and green John Deere colors.
I think JD also sold a version of it.
Some of the members here are using 30-40 year old equipment, so they might be even more observant when they see someone else using a really old and/or uncommon model.

This one was running & blowing snow through that side-to-side array of vanes above the auger, so it has its own "look" when it is firing snow.
They were OK, and I definitely had to use the burst lever (a few more RPM's) when trying to clear the EOD mess.
