I love seeing these old rigs still running and working! I wish we could have more on here...not many in my neck of the woods.

This lady (Myrna) is in her 80's and uses her rig as an office for Horseshoe competitions she runs, around Alberta.
She bought new and is presently in mint condition for its age.
