Hi there,

I don't know how you call this little "vehicle", it was very common in my childhood.
I always wanted to make a real one (I tried when I was a boy but never came out very good) anyway this is the Lego version:

Woo! A Go-cart! :laugh: A very neat vig you've got here Rupi, very neat indeed! Cool building backdrop, and the guy's expression is priceless, the cap flying off his head is a nice touch. :laugh: :thumbup:

Nice vignette! The face of the minifig on the vehicle reminds me of those terrible accidents presented in the TV show "Scarred." That show is giving me the creeps! Couldn't watch it more than one or two times.
