how cool would this be

just a quick idea here , how cool would it be if snowblower companies could produce in limited numbers old style snowblowers from the real early days and still put on todays safety features etc. like the most recent ford mustang , chevy camaro , dodge charger/challenger.....of course it would probably cost to much to tool up for that, but it would be cool anyway. hey, its just a thought.

That would be great! Good old snowblowers' with all the safety features of todays' snowblowers! Cost too much is right...manufacturers have tried duplicating older models of tractors and flunked completely as they cost way too much for most people$$$!

Yes the cost is what drives production, unfortunatly it would not work with snowblowers as like it does with cars.

The best thing to do is buildyour own retro modified one.

Exactly, biuld a few modified snowblowers, and then you can market them to the Snowblowerforum members!
BTW, do you need any help with financing this project? Maybe the members here would be interested in helping out with this new business venture...no, just kidding
