waynesboro@herald-mail.com WILLIAMSON, Pa. - For all the noise they make, you'd think you were seeing a NASCAR race. If your eyes were closed. The most horsepower these machines can generate was 28 - in the top racing class. About a dozen men and one woman brought their lawn mowers - some stock just as they came off a Lowe's sales floor, some with souped-up motors. They bounced around a small, muddy, makeshift track rimmed with straw bales Thursday evening at the Franklin County Fair.

Editor's Note: Tim Rowland is on vacation. This column was first published on May 5, 2001. Old Copper has since, um, been replaced. You might be surprised by the number of inquiries I receive about that slick, well-oiled machine of mine known as Old Copper, the Ford pickup built in the year of our nation's bicentennial that has been my trusted (somewhat) friend and companion over these past two years. To bring you up to date, the latest episode began (wavy dream sequence) a couple of weeks ago when my boss, Bob Maginnis, mentioned he was having a chestnut cut out of his yard and asked me if I wanted the wood.
