    well i ht a little snafu with my wagon i was trying to remove it from it's tomb of weeds and upon doing so it fell apart due to rust( ironically the body is supposed to be rust resistant go figure) so now i am either going to be building a form scratch chassis which i have no clue how to do or i am going wihat a pedal car seeing as there is not alot of pedal cars i may go that route just to bring some flavor to the build off i may still use the wagon though to build a bed or trailer with it but i think it s toast good thing we got 3 months lol i am going to the antique store today and going to see what he needs for a pedal car he has and see what i can do i also am trying to work a deal out on a cool one from a.s. boltnut so more then likely my entry will be a pedal car/wagon hybrid with parts from both we shall see what i can do

    This old Sears wagon with Radio Flyer running gear will undergo a makeover with my participation. I've collected some parts, I've sketched out some ideas as they come to mind. Stretched rail chassis with the help of some old bed rails, new oversized wheels, Stone Cold Outdoors trunk, possible headers, recycled wood side rails for starters. I've finished my SAV-WAY FLYER so I'm ready for Sept 1. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Sounds like A.S. has some Illini-guistic knowledge of the local colloquialisms. Nice!

    Build Challenges might get more traffic, what say RatRod? Either way works for me.
    There are at least 3 Facebook forums that dedicated to pedal cars and wagons with no competitions.

    No word from the Chief one way or the other. I'll message a moderator...
    Washed and took a pic of what my possible entry will be...

    Hoping to snare a wagon on my way up or back from the campsite this weekend. Probably a 'post 9/1' entry. Got a line on a ratty one here in the Twin Cities, but no response from CL seller. This looks like fun, and I like the Build Challenge placement for the thread. Thanks for setting this up Carl!

    I think you would get more traffic there for sure.

    There you go we have a majority. Look for the new build thread here in the Build Challenges forum Sept 1st. Probably have some catchy name like the
    PEDAL CAR, WAGON, WHEELBARROW BUILDOFF.
    First post will have the rules as discussed here earlier.
    Then we can all post pics of what we will be using, and our progress.
    Carl.
