Radio Flyer Car

From a September 29, 2010 ktuu.com post datelined Anchorage, Alaska:

•••••••••••••••••••••••

A Valley couple took a childhood memory and turned it into a retirement project. Now, they have a Radio Flyer car to drive around town in.

Fred Keller and Judy Foster worked on the car for 11 months and finished in August of this year, and their ride has been turning heads.

The base of the wagon is a 1976 Mazda pickup truck that Foster inherited from her dad.

The vehicle turns heads everywhere they go.

"I think the words I hear the most often are 'awesome' or 'cool,' or people go by and give us a 'hi' sign," Foster said.

The wheels are made from hub caps and detergent bottles, and the steering wheel is the actual wheel from a wagon. The handle rises eight feet high.
