  • The Power Wagon

    I am now 18 years old and just started my third year of weling in high school. In my first year, my friend and I had a crazy dream of putting a gasoline engine on a radio flyer wagon. It being completely rediculous... we decided to do it. I bought a little Millermatic 135 and two years and about $2000 later, here it is:

    Side view

    Front view

    As crazy as it is, that little bad boy is decked out with everything, the pictures are just a little old. It now has a chromed aluminum diamond plate bed, 9hp electric start motor, head lights, brake lights, turn signals, underside neon, and of course flame throwin' exhaust. Step aside Dodge. The new Power Wagon is on the block!

    Any questions or comments? Feel free to email me at: train_boy_1@hotmail.com or just post a reply.

              Not that great (just kidding)

              Justin's obviosly updated the pics but not the description, as those pics have the diamond plate, headlights, and 9hp electric start Honda replacement engine. It does have a flame-throwing, dual chrome exhaust though and the neon and all that stuff. It also has a homemade blue-flame seat. In case no one's figured it out, I'm one of the friends that helped with the project. It took 2 years only because we worked on it for short periods of time and not very often. Here are some nightime pics of the flame thrower and neon.
