Steve,

Now you struck a cord in me.

I hope this isn’t to far off the topic ?

I’m so old (age 69) it doesn’t seem vintage to me because I was there in those very early years (1958 to about 1961) with my Fox Go Boy with a 2 1/2 Clinton engine and then after that a Simplex Kart and Dual West Bend power plants….That seemed to me at the time to be as fast as a lot karts out there today ?

 I must have watch this 16mm promo  film below about ten times when Mcculloch chainsaws was into karting big time at our 1961 Sport Show .

The whole thing is pretty good.

Back in that day it took two strong men to start a Twin Mac Kart !

(Even with little man Don Knotts at the wheel)

 (July 21, 1924 – February 24, 2006)
