Every once in a while, a scrapper friend will bring me something odd or different that he finds.A couple days ago he showed up with part of an old carnival ride :OThe price..... A pack of smokes and a hot cup of coffee :D:DWell, an old hitch from a roller, a piece of shaft that has been laying around for years because it was the same size as front spindles, drill a few holes and add a few bolts and the kids are pleased as punch sm01sm01sm01It seats 8 with seat belts :J:JAnd it's even almost the right yellow :o):o)

id="quote">I've got my scrapper going back to where he got this to see if they have any more of it.After a little research, it's made by Sartori or Rondina, an Italian carnival ride manufacturer. Goes on railroad type tracks. Their website shows new ones, but no prices. :o:OThere are complete ones, put on wheels, that are rented out for parties etc.One site I looked at rents a complete space train, 3 cars and a rocket engine with driver, capacity 26 kids for a whopping $299 for the first hour and $150 each additional hour. :o:O
