1983 Penske Indy Go-Kart (Slick)
Last updated Aug 20, 2010
I made a trip to the Auto parts store to get 4 spark plugs for my Horizon. I noticed they were giving away a Penske Indy style Go-Kart. It looked so cool. There were no entry forms so I asked and waited 5 minutes for them to find some. Two hours later I get the phone call that I won, and I need to pick it up now. We took this picture of my daughter standing in it when we got home. I gave rides to the kids for a few years until the poilice laid down the law. I tried off roading it but it wasn't built for that.
We got a good deal on a trade-in for a tiller for the garden, which I still have. I really hated to sell it but the money we save on renting a tiller, there is no doubt it was the right thing to do.
Fiberglass body over metal frame
Briggs and Straton motor
3.5 or 5 HP, I don't remember
A kill switch in front of the seat, right where my kids feet sat. Always hit it when off roading.
