Fantastic!! I love it. Looks like it has a real running gear under it.

My dad drove one of those in the last Chuck Wagon Race in Idaho at the State Fairgrounds in Boise in 1953. He said the made them illegal after that because they were too dangerous.

WElcome to LJ!! :-)

Now you need a hoodlum wagon (bed roll wagon) to go behind it.

Did you shrink the tire on to the wheel or just band it?

Nice project Mike. Did you have a set of plans to work off of or did you wing it. This looks like a
nice project to do for all of the grandkids to play in.
