At first glance, it may look like a Radio Flyer sculpture, but it’s actually a drivable vehicle, built around a Volkswagen Bug chassis. Powering this unique vehicle is “a 1641cc flat-four and a Renault 5 turbo that will turn heads and burn rubber.” Click here for more pictures.

The inspiration for the work came when Toby was watching Tool Time on TV during an episode when Tim the Toolman brought home a motorized Radio Flyer as a Christmas gift. After toiling hard for a long time, Toby built his new toy with tubed frame style seats, exposed engine and a great paint job.
