    I'm afraid to ask, but is that a motorized shopping cart?

    Yup. Large scale. With a V-8 engine, wheels, radiator, the works. I haven't seen it run (it serves as the sign for a local repair shop), but it looks like it will. With the driver's position up top, I presume that any turns are taken gingerly.

    It looks like the hot setup for the shopper in a hurry.

    Cheers, Jock

    I really, really want to get this on Facebook. My friends in the rural areas of South Carolina would be thrilled to see that.

    Sure. You can say it is parked outside an auto repair shop in Brunswick, NY, just a few miles from Troy, NY.

    I presume you can save the photo from SC, yes?

    Shot taken with my Sony Superzoom, if anyone cares.

    Cheers, Jock
