    Hey all, hope I don't get in trouble for posting this, but dangit I really think you guys will dig it. Anyway, last July I bought this wagon from a lady on Craigslist, tore it down and rebuilt it just in time for my son's first birthday party today. Wheels and logo are white pearl over white base. Body is .015 fire red flake over metallic red base. Had some good friends help with the fabrication and upholstery. Hope you guys dig it!

    I'm betting your kid is the "my dad is cooler than your dad" for a reason.

    'Long Roofless' is known as a 'tub'. Superb design and craftsmanship, excellent guidance for a youngster.
    Congrats, Sir.
