Ah! Speaking of Go Karts. My dad (a Ford Mechanic and later a machinist) built my Go Kart from Dart Kart plans
and put 2 West Bend 580’s in it. I will never forget the weekends racing it. I bet many of you had Go Karts also!
Let’s hear about them!! It’s only a LITTLE off topic. ;-)

Ironic that my first go-kart (at age 6) was a “prototype” Singer sewing machine - I used to sit and watch my mother sew on one and just imagine how that wheel could be a "drive-wheel" on a go-kart. Fast forward 65 years - and here we are - electric cars??
