Build Update & a Restored Speed King Auto Racer (SKAR) on YouTube

Hello to all. I have been busy working on the Super Car and Baby Jeep car for some time now. The Baby jeep is no longer a restoration but a new build. I chopped all of the bottom chassis out and decided to construct a new and stronger chassis made of 1 1/2"x 1 1/2"x1/8" square tubing. Now its my own design. Will use the upper jeep body that I modified and restored. I added a golf car front and rear axle with coil over shock suspension. I designed the chassis to accomodate all the new parts and still use the cool jeep body or any other body I wish to build. Pictures to follow.

   Before I leave I want to share a clip on You Tube that belongs to my freind Thomas Fetterman. He acquired the rare Speed King Auto Racer (SKAR) last year and finished restoring it to original condition a few days ago. What a great job he did and what a historical piece of Americana. Too bad I sold my SKAR earlier this year. I have too many projects on hand. I hope you enjoy his video. Please share your thoughts.
