Below is a page from a 1985 Popular Mechanics magazine with a couple of Delivery Wagons in the Letters To The Editor section! As one might suspect, the Delivery Wagon was originally featured in Popular Mechanics...
But sadly, after taking a few preliminary measurements in my workshop (ie. my garage), I came to the unavoidable conclusion that if I truly started to build this thing, I wasn't going to be able to close the garage door ever again, or until the project was completed (whichever came first), because the boat would have been just a touch too long for my cramped garage! Unfortunately we were in the depths of a frigid winter in Ottawa at the time (it seems like that happens all too often). Those delicious images of scantily-clad women were regrettably crowded from my mind by the much more realistic pictures of a garage filled to the rafters with snowdrifts.
I had always intended to send you a photo of the completed car. But just like the seven-seas and the scantily... (oh, forget it already!), I never seemed to get around to it. Having recently "rediscovered" you through your excellent World Wide Web site, I am now sending you the pictures (Christmas Card from 1991) through the convenience of email. As you can see from the happy smiles, I chose the right project.
From Ottawa, where winter is fast approaching. (Again!)
Still: these are cute pedal cars and we're glad to be able to share the photos here!
The Buffy-Porson was orginally featured in a book of the same name by Peter & Mike Stevenson.
