I built myself a new ride. It is primarily a parade car, and a toy. The inspiration came from the following website. www.smallcarplans.com (http://www.smallcarplans.com) Future plans include a red padded seat, and a black surrey top. I'll mount signs advertising my business on the side.

Arbo, nice job! Also, thanks for the url on smallcarplans. I glanced over all of his newsletters and it looks pretty interesting.

Yes, that is an MM251. It has been a great machine. I have it about a year now. I also set it up with the 30A spoolgun for aluminum, and that works great also.

The wheels are 20" 144 spoke bicycle wheels I bought from a vendor on eBay. The engine is a 6.5HP B&S. Power is transfered through a Comet torque converter and a jackshaft before it gets to the rear axle. Top speed is about 20MPH.
