Jim, that is one awesome picture. Kid getting seat time in his dream mobile. Us seeing ourselves in our dream mobile. Love everything about this.

Wonderful picture, Jim! Save that one for when he wins at LeMans in about 2035... :cheers:

Yo Jim!
I never intended to "one up" you, I promise...

TWWTFM and I went to the mall yesterday. While we were there, we -of course- had to walk through Sears so I could look at the tools. We came across a display of small battery powered riding toys, including a tiny little go-kart. I sent a picture of it to HamDip and said something about buying one for the Bacon Bit, if it came in green. (For any non-Team Slotus folks, HamDip is my daughter. Bacon Bit is my grand-daughter. It's complicated. The dog's name is Pork Chop...)

It turns out, they had to go to the mall later that evening for something and had to go see the kart...

I captioned it "Gimme that checker, I'm going for my victory lap now!" I'm thinking Ferrari F1 about the time your little guy is winning Lemans. Maybe they can be team-mates?

:cheers:

Car seems familiar, I've seen it in a thread.
Just noticed the windshield has a nice angle and curve.
What is it from and how wide please?

Nope, no kids or grand kids, nieces have made me some sort of grand-uncle but they are all in another state so no chance of cute pics from me.
