    A member on a local forum I am on is selling an original 79 pace car go cart from 1979. He says its the ONLY fox go cart ever produced, so it must be pretty rare? Either way, its pretty sweet IMO.... Thought you guys might like to see this...

    Im not trying to help sell it... I don't even know the seller. I just thought that folks here would think it was cool.... I removed the link to the "for sale" thread so this doesn't get locked up...

    I still have an old amusement park go kart roller frame and a couple of old Briggs 5 horse motors in the shed... This gives me some serious ideas.

    They want about 8 times what the kart is worth. There are tons of "one off" karts out there. I have a Raymond Leong Hawaiian Punch kart in my garage. It was given to me. 3.5 HP original Tecumseh engine that runs. The seat isn't all torn up and no rust. Having the Mustang body is cool but not $800 cool.

    These go-karts were made by FW & Associates in Tempe, AZ. They made the mini Volare wagon Tattoo drove on Fantasy Island. FW was for Fred Wagenhals, who later started the 1/24 scale Nascar & NHRA diecast craze with Action Performance. Here is an original sales brochure:
