Show me the worst looking snowblower you've sold!

So about 10 months ago... I saw this ad for a non-running 5 hp 24" Craftsman (probably mid 90s vintage) snowblower that had the tall metal chute.

At the time, I also happened to have a 9hp/29" Craftsman snowblower from 2003 that had the short plastic chute that I was prepping for resale.

I basically bought the 5hp snowblower just for the chute. After I swapped chutes, I then gave the 5 horsepower snowblower some much needed love:

New spark plug
New recoil starter string
New auger belt (it actually came with the snowblower which wasn't mentioned in the ad)
Fresh oil change
The carburetor was cleaned
Replaced the handlebars from a parts snowblower
The skid shoes were replaced with used ones in far better condition
A fuel shutoff valve was added

It actually ran pretty darn well afterwards. I sold it about 10 days later for a small profit. I got what I needed out of it, and didn't want to hold on to it for 4-5 months.

The first 3 pictures are the "before" pics from the craigslist ad that I answered. The remaining 4 pictures are from my ad when I sold it.
