I think the one my Dad built for me for the Railroad Days Parade was more like the cartoon one than this one. The wheels on mine were logs, the rear one actually turned, the front one was hollowed out in the center and hid my old pedal tractor front wheel (I still have the tractor remains). The tire on it fell apart halfway through the parade, and we rode on the rim, which was bending up the whole time, so the car shook up and down and really made the "float" look funny. I was about 12 years old at the time. The car ended up in a local museum, I'm sure it's long gone by now! Wish I could find a picture.
Oh, and it cost a LOT less to build!
No, I couldn't actually run it with my feet, we pulled it with a tote-goat.
The Flintstone car was great...if everywhere you wanted to go was in a straight line.
That's why the tractor wheel hidden inside the front wheel log, mine could steer!
I often wondered how Fred parked that thing. . .
I think the "modern conveniences" they had were actually more fun to watch than the story lines.
Well for starters, Fred's used redwood logs and woolly mammoth seat covers so this is not a accurate replica.
Now wheres that expert when you need him? :>)
There must have been quite a number of those built back then. I remember as a kid back in the 60's, there was one in the Mollala Or. 4th of July parade. Was too young to pay attention beyond, look it's the the Flintstones car (!!) to know how it was powered.
Some kids built one and drove it in the parade.
What is that green stuff on the back 'wheel'? I thought a rolling .... Never mind.
