Someone scored a nice cart!

Erwin, your cart is so big does it require a license plate and title transfer? :P

Watch it Buddy, or I'll call the DMV on your "small" cart.

BTW: the new one is bigger... inside... even swallows the rig whole...

I checked the tires... It says "not for Highway use" ... Oh well I'll drive it on the Autobahn then...
