:smile1: Just thought I'd put this in here for fun.This was a old MTD lawn flite :madhop:[conversion] This is how my grandson learnt to drive.I used to pull him around behind me while I was cutting grass,At first he didn't steer to well just kinda dragged him behind.He eventually figured it out.As you can see it was pretty safe he had to wear his seat belt all the time.I made it with a complete roll cage so if he drove under soemthing he'd be protected.Once he figured out how to steer thats when I had to teach him gas to go [foot pedal] brake to stop.One way was forward on the shift lever the other was reverse.Put a centrufugal clutch on the motor so really all he could do was step on the gas to make it go.Once he got good at it he hauled dirt,wood from the bush with me.He loved it and used it untill he out grew it.Sold it to another young family with kids,just like they did so no idea where its at now.Larry:D
