Gas Powered Blender - Photo proof....

Some time back, aspersions upon my veracity were cast with respect to just who invented the gas powered blender. I finally managed to locate the digital files of my wedding, 9-2-2000. In this photo, on the left holding the handgrips is my Father in Law, the brother of Ray Abrams, who built the blender Irwin is holding, you can clearly see the chrome expansion chamber in the picture.

As you can imagine the band was rather annoyed by this machine.

This was not the first generation machine, it had electric start!

I don't know who did it first, but these things have been mixing Margaritas in Baja for looong time.
here is one my buddy brought to my 50th b-day a "few" years ago.
Notice the "theme" mounting platform...



Definitely the hit of the party. When this thing fires up folks just show up from nowhere with their Solo Cup.

Gas powered blender - meh

What's really cool is a PTO powered blender as seen on this Land Rover

It's still gas powered.

Really cool, though.

My grandmother had an electric blender on the farm. The only electricity came from a generator. The generator was powered by a gas engine.
Gas Powered Blender circa 1947.
What does she win

I have a friend that makes really trick ones. Harley, dirt bike, whatever is your style. They aren't cheap, started around $500.00. I will see if I can find ant pics? I have an air powered blender on my jeep, works good.

A whole bunch of years ago at a drunkfest of an Easter weekend camp somebody had a blender and a generator.

They couldn't get the generator running.

I was the hero that evening with the air tank and compressor on my Jeep running an air drill attached to the blenders hex shaft.

It's kind of funny how we used to obsess over onboard air and air tools. Now I carry a cordless drill, not that I'd run a blender with it, I have a 1000 watt inverter in the Jeep that would power the blender directly.

Wait, see, this is why I am confused. PTO driven blenders on range rover are ADV acceptible, snorkels and a spice cabinet in a lexus are not. Where is the line drawn??

Not Range Rover, Land Rover. And if you don't know why a Lexus will never be an acceptable ADV vehicle, think about how difficult a crevasse traverse is, and then imagine trying it without spilling your latte.
