My brilliant new invention
« on: September 28, 2014, 07:29:53 PM »
The Boy wants a car when he turns 17. No chance  evil: evil:

BUT. I suggested a project to him. Get an old car from a scrapyard or buy a banger fo 50.

Remove engine. Install pedals and a chain to drive the driveshaft. A flintsone car for teenagers  :thumbsup:

Roof, lights, steering,windows. Everyfink except the engine  :thumbsup:

Prolly need road tax, but the insurance would be cheap, like  rubschin: rubschin:

ANd no petrol  :thumbsup: :thumbsup:
