Conditions of Use
Billy and Todd were working on building a go cart in Todd’s basement. They had built go carts before, but this one was going to be special. They got the wheels off of two old baby buggies. They got wood and nails from Todd’s dad. But they got their idea from a dream…
Most go carts have to be pushed or pulled to make them go. Some even have motors. Some just go down hills. But there was this special one that didn’t need anybody pushing it, and could even go up hills on its own. It was in Billy’s dream. Here’s what he dreamed:
It was green, and the kids made it special. It went everywhere on its own – no motor, nobody had to push it, it just went places. The secret was in how it was built. It just had a board for the body, and a board to lean back against. It had boards to hold the wheels onto the body. The secret was it had HUGE wheels on the back. They were like 4 times the size of the front wheels. That’s how it went on its own – you were always going downhill! It was just plain amazing.
To make it go, Billy just sat down on the seat. It started going. When he got up, it stopped. It never really went very fast, and that was a good thing, because it did not have brakes!
Billy got rich with this go cart. He sold rides on it for $.50 for 5 minutes. On Saturdays, he’d go out on the street in front of his house. Kids would be lined up waiting by 7:30 AM!. Usually by noon he had made about $20.00.
After a couple months of this he had enough money to buy more materials, and with his special design, built and sold lots of those go carts – for $1,000. each!
Then he woke up. He finished building the cart with Todd. He couldn't wait to try it out. He sat down in the seat... to be continued...
