    That’s got to be the most awkward pram I’ve ever seen. If you left it on your front porch, Safeway would take it during their weekly cart roundup.

    Yeah.. the pram looks awkward… but just look at all that chrome and the white wall tires!
    The snow blower is what caught my eye though. I wonder how many fingers were lost with those exposed flywheels and belts, not to mention the rotary blades

    @ Charlene – I can see where the idea came from though, I always see mothers with toddlers walking by their side and their strollers full of groceries.

    I was the occupant of a very similar pram, only with larger spoked wheels. I doubt my mother used it as a carry basket for shopping, but freed of the base, it was used as a car bed.

    We definitely had one of those Silex coffee carafes with the candle in the base.

    I with my father’s “stuff” I saw a device that looked like that alarm. I didn’t examine it closely I thought it was a rotisserie for a BBQ grill. I will have to see if I can find it again.
