Guys from Nova Scotia building cars? That's probably a torpedo tube on the side, disguised as an exhaust.



S'all for now!

I have several cars I'd like to scale down!
One is the 1914 American Underslung Roadster, A beautiful car with wheels big enough to 'Kart using ones from a model T

And then, no car can beat the playfulness of the Stanley Steamer, and what could be more fun than building a steam-powered Cyclekart?

As previously, Johnnie D expressed an interest in doing the Voisin, so I chose to leave it to him (and he would do a much better job than me). There is a mountain of very cool detail on that. As there are so many choices my personal preference is for everybody to try to do something different.

Isn't it the coolest shape! The spare tire will be fun to reproduce, it'll probably end up being a picture on the end of the cowl to accommodate the engine.

oh! I bet it wouldn't be TOO hard to put a real wheel on there... and just think of the ventilation through the spokes!

I agree with Nate, and a lot more room than a boat tail, slab tank or most others. Come on Victor, we want to see the first car finished, then build another.winking smiley

Jack, that's awesome! What motivates it? I see a crank on the side.

This photo is great! Did you have a lion? smiling smiley When I was a kid I remember seeing motorcycles in the "Wall of Death" attraction at the county fair, but never 4 wheel vehicles. The fairs today are pretty boring.

No, refisk,..but that is the only cyclecar that I ever saw that had a " Side Car"....as a matter of fact that is a Lady, with the Lion. I grew up, about a mile from one of the Wall of Deaths winter quarters, those guys were loose cannons. They borrowed my Mini Bike, and tried to use it on the wall, but the old Square tread tires, and low horsepower thing, wouldn't climb the low ramp transition to the wall. They finally got one to do it, but it had a Honda motor on it, and different wheels.
