As another Monday rolls around, a little bit of the past............well, my past at least........couldn't get enough of these as a kid...........actually, I still can't pass up a ride.....................this one modeled after the Lusse Brothers Sport Skooter, built between 1947 and 1951, after the early Dodgem cars but before the Italians got into it big time....................

I see the makings of a "Rat Fink" kind of build here!!!

Can't you see some freckled faced kid with a ballcap on.......tongue hanging out......eyes bulging........two hands on the wheel with the elbows sticking out about 2 feet on each side.........knees about as high as his chin and sticking out to the side........
