Inspired by a love of vintage cars, automobile enthusiast Jeep2003 has put a nostalgic spin on a timeless tool. Using unconventional materials, he has custom-built his own retro lawn mower in the style of a cool and classic cruiser.
Like many vintage cars, Jeep2003's DIY lawn mower features pointed, “bullet” tail lights, futuristic contours, whitewall tires, and a matte, mint green coat of paint. Though its authentic-looking body appears to be a genuine—albeit miniature—vehicle, Jeep2003 actually crafted it from an old snowblower's engine and the deck of a worn out smoker grill. With some creativity and a lot of elbow grease, he was able to transform the mundane push mower into a sleek and small “car.”
Jeep2003 documented the progress of his process on Old Mini Bikes, a forum geared toward individuals interested in creating their own miniature motorcycles.

Spring cleaning has never looked so stylish!

Jeep2003 is not the first to create a retro lawn mower, as seen here. Mark Moriarity is the brains behind this “Atomic Yard Master.”
