    Looks like fun, but does it work/run?

    I just saw an ad somewhere for "golf cart" 12" Cragers four spoke, 4+4" bolt.
    Thought someone might be interested...

    pretty sure thats a no.
     
  22. After the Zinger, are there any plans for the Trendero? That Ranchero has always been one of my kooky favorites and I'm amazed that it has survived in such great shape. I know it came from the Trend body shop but are you the owner?
     
  23. Nevermind...I just did a search and answered my own questions.

    Congratulations.
