    One thought on “Zamboni: The Coolest Machines on Ice”

    1. Ha! What's not to love. Everything you've ever wanted to know about a Zamboni but were afraid to ask or didn't know whom to ask. 0-9 mph in just over 6 minutes! Studded tires, Peanuts cartoons and the connection with Charles Shultz, etc etc."There are three things in life that people like to stare at: a flowing stream, a crackling fire, and a Zamboni clearing the ice," Charlie Brown famously pronounced." p.56.Fun and quirky.
