I started mowing in 1988 with a 1953, Huffy, 18" push mower. My grandfather bought it new, gave it to my father, and he gave it to me. Used it two years, then bought a 21" JD self propelled mower.
I had actually used the Huffy back in the early 60's to mow a few lawns in our old neighborhood. I still have the Huffy in my shop. Haven't tried to start it in 3 or 4 years.
