After building an electric car, the irony wasn’t lost on me having to drive that electric car to a gas station to buy gas for my riding lawn mower.
Two weeks later, I got a phone call out of the blue from someone I had never met before, asking if I wanted to buy his old GE Elec-Trak riding lawn mower. The mower wasn’t in great condition, there was plenty of rust on it, and even a tree branch growing through the rear axle. I started cleaning up the mower and getting it to work again.
