I love this replica, of course. Man, would it be cool in 3/4 scale like a cyclekart. Are you able to fit in it, or is it kid size?

Gregg here ... I'm 6'0" at about 215. Yes I can get in it, but most of these scaled cars require a removable steering wheel, and this is no exception. I suspect this would be a fun driver, but driving locales are as big a problem as they were when I built my first soapbox car, powered by a Briggs Model WMB (3/4 hp), back in 1957, at age 12.Incidentally, I found an identical kick-start WMB engine(Briggs, Washing Machine - B model, from the late 1930's) a year ago in Green Bay WI - broken camshaft, sheared flywheel key, stuck valves, clogged tank, etc. etc. I stayed with it until I had it running. Now, I have an itch to re-create that first car.Thanks for the kind words, gents - Mr. Schultz included. He poured a lot of time and money into sportsmen midgets in the last few years, trying to preserve that open wheel sport. Now, he wants to build a cycle kart. I offer my cheap advice when asked.I have built several scaled cars and restored a handful of vintage open wheel cars - and will endeavor to add them
