HEY WOODCARVER,
WE STARTED A PROJECT LIKE THIS, ONLY WE USED E-BAY ATV PARTS FOR FRONT SUSP. AND GO-CART STRAIGHT AXLE AND BRAKES FOR THE REAR. WE ARE MAKING IT LOOK LIKE A '35 WOODY WAGON. WITH A WOOD BODY IN BACK AND FIBERGLASS IN FRONT. IT HAS A NEW 6.5 HONDA CLONE. AND I'M USING A LOT OF IDEAS FROM THE TOT RODS OF ENGLAND. YOU CAN FIND THEM ON THE WEB AT U-TUBE. JUST TYPE IN TOT RODS. I HAVE ABOUT $1500 IN IT UP TO NOW AND I'D SAY ITS HALF DONE. HAS TAKEN 8 MONTHS THO. PARTIMER.

This isnt an instructable, but any guesstimation on how someone made this!? I guess a better question would be..... whats original bumper car and whats custom? HA, sweet ride either way! Im guessing only the original frame chassis was used, everything else, cept maybe some scrap wires or fiberglass body.

Wow Fungus, where do you get these stories? You have to be a member of Fark, I can't think of anywhere else you could find this stuff.

I know! Whenever I'm bored, I just click it... and a few hours later, I'll still be clicking it. It's pretty awesome to think how much neat stuff is out there.

I think I've looked at Fark once or twice. I just subscribe to a few dozen feeds and skim those.

Very Cool !!! Got to wonder at $50K (If I read it right) what he did to these .....I would think that stripping down a smaller 4 wheel ATV (250 cc instead of 750cc) and fitting the body on would work but not sure if street legal....I know that we run the ATV's on the roads in the hills with no problem ......other then helmets .....
