A recent trip to a local automotive swap meet resulted in a gem of a find. My son and I stumbled upon this traditional go kart (minus engine, brakes, and a seat) for $30. We couldn't pass it up, much to the chagrin of Mom waiting at home.
We stripped it down, chiseled off decades of rust and gave 'er a fresh coat of paint. Today we took advantage of a discount at the local Harbor Freight discount tool store and found a 6 HP engine.
Whether a small block V8 or a 6hp go kart engine, there is nothing quite like putting an engine in.
Next we'll build a simple seat and take her out for an maiden test drive. Stay tuned!
