In the post about "man caves" there is a photo of a couple of Shriner model Ts. Are these still available? If so, where can you purchase them? New or used. We have a 8 years old friend that would love to have one.
If buying an older Mini-Model T, you might want to check how old the unit is and if it has plastic wheels. The old tires sometimes explode when adding air and destroy the wheel. The newer units have metal spoke wheels for safety. A new set of tires and wheels will cost quite a bit. To Order parts call 1-800-310-2590

LOTS of T-style go karts!
I'm not affiliated with this company in any way - I'm just pretty fair at "Googling" now. Old dogs can learn new tricks. LOL
Thanks for the info. Neat site. I little pricier than I expected. My wife said the smile on her face will be priceless. I think we will keep looking. If I wait long enough we could just buy her a real one.
