One couple has finally solved the issue of trunk space. Fred Keller and Judy Foster took their childhood memories of the classic red wagon, a Radio Flyer, and built a car out of it. The process took about 11 months, with the pair finishing the project during this past summer. Since then, they’ve been driving about the country, catching the attention of anyone they pass, including a number of news affiliates. It’s not exactly MTV’s Pimp My Ride, perhaps more suitably Pimp My Wagon, but still.
The surgical procedure began with a 1976 Mazda pickup truck that Foster inherited from her father. The distinctive handle rises about eight feet into the air, perfectly duplicating the tilted look of the original kid’s toy. The detail hails down to the Radio Flyer logo on the side, and the patented wheels, made from hub caps and detergent bottles. The steering wheel is a perfect fit from an actual wagon.
