Would any of you buy another Honda rotary mower (models HR21, HR21-5, HRA21, HR194, HR195, etc.) sold from 1979 to 1989?

I would, if it were one of the following (all with the ROTO-STOP blade-brake clutch):
HR21PXA (push type) or HR21SXA (self-propelled) (uses GV150 144 cc L-head engine, rated 3.5 hp)
HR21-5PDA (push type) or HR21-5SDA (self-propelled) (uses GV200 197 cc L-head engine, rated 5 hp)
HR194PXA (push type) or HR194SXA (self-propelled) (uses GXV120 118 cc OHV engine, rated 4 hp)
HR214PXA (push type) or HR214SXA (self-propelled) (uses GXV120 118 cc OHV engine, rated 4 hp)
HRA214PXA (push type) or HRA214SXA (self-propelled) (uses GXV120 118 cc OHV engine, rated 4 hp)
HR215PXA (push type) or HR215SXA (self-propelled) (uses GXV140 135 cc OHV engine, rated 4.5 hp) (1983-1989 model year production)
HRA215PXA (push type) or HRA215SXA (self-propelled) (uses GXV140 135 cc OHV engine, rated 4.5 hp) (1983-1989 model year production)
HR216PXA (push type) or HR216SXA (self-propelled) (uses GXV160 163 cc OHV engine, rated 5.5 hp) (1983-1989 model year production)
HRA216PXA (push type) or HRA216SXA (self-propelled) (uses GXV160 163 cc OHV engine, rated 5.5 hp) (1983-1989 model year production)

The reason I start at 1979 because it was the first year Honda had sold their mowers in the U.S., and the ending point of 1989 marks the Honda Power Equipment division's 10th anniversary in the U.S.
