    I was thinking about something, eh, like making a homemade car , out of 2x4s, some old wheels off of a stroller, put a little seat in there, make it have no brakes on purpose,, :D get a twelve pack, and take turns pushing eachother down steep roads, and see where you end up :haha: :D

    They used to race coaster cars down in a little town in southern Arizona called Bisbee. The "unlimited" guys could reach speeds of 60 miles an hour. They'd still be doin it I suspect if one hadn't lost control and killed a couple of spectators.

    Most unfortunately they were children so just be real careful. Ko?

    I think I'd need more than a 12 pack before rolling down steep hills with no brakes would be fun....but after 15 or 16 I might downright enjoy it :D

    You can do the same thing with Radio Flyers and shopping carts. The radio flyers are fun because when drunk they can be difficult to steer while riding in them. We used to have alot of fun with a gardening wagon/cart on a BMX track at one of my old jobs, until we broke the wagon/cart thing on a jump.

    We do that with a Barbie Jeep every year. In Az at a place they call "the luge". Of course the jeep only lasts a few runs. Looks like this -

    :eek1: When I was a kid, an old dryer drum was a fun ride. Just climb inside at the top of a hill, friends give you a big push, and away you go. :eek1:

    Build the car, but have the steering be reversed. Just to make it interesting.

    The best idea would be to get liquored up and then build the car.

    As kids we lived in Connecticut for a few years. We had an old sled made out of metal school desks and skis. Used to get 4 guys to push it up to the top of the hill then jump on and ride it down. Hit a bump and guys would go flying out of those old slippy metal chairs. Drug my little brother down the whole hill underneath the sled onetime. :haha: That was a lot of fun.
