Had some bricks for a backyard project and decided to do a weight test with the car. Pictured below is over 1000 lbs. of bricks on the car (bricks weigh just over 21 lbs. each) while the car is supported on the bolsters. The car is glued together with Titebond III and #6 wood screws were used to hold the parts together while the glue dried; No steel structure.

If you are looking for some clubs cars to haul the public, or just want a car to put the kids on, this is the perfect car for you.

I also do custom modification so if you like the car but want to make some changes, please send a message for your ideas or comment below.
