  Kart sellers: Users of Market Place on Facebook had a 200K hack.
Posted by: Mark Loraine - 02-20-2024, 10:35 AM - Forum: General - No Replies

For the people using Market Place to buy and sell their Kart parts and such should probably change your passwords for all sensitive account information on your stupid phones.  Clicking on links of recent has also come to be more dubious with re-directing to other sites and even to malware. Thats why I give the title of the article besides the article link itself.
Although the article is dated 2/14/24 it does reach back to 10/23 for the actual hack, so this could be old news to some, so consider it a reminder.

hi guys, been buried in work. 
i just went in admin and went through all the backlogged new user requests.
i allowed alot of newbes but didn't make a list.
so anyone who set up an account check to see if you were activated.

if you used a "handle" or email you were deleted and need to re apply.
if you used a real looking name i probably allowed your account.
as per usual if you were missed or need help send me a email at 
vintage.karts@aol.com

i'll get you squared away eventually. 
work is hectic and i have little spare time.
 we're a low buck operation here so sometimes it'll take forever but we will get to you.

  Id-ing mcculloch engines
Posted by: David Luciani - 02-13-2024, 09:55 AM - Forum: General - No Replies

So Billy Rice asked a good question on facebook.
He wants a way to i.d. mccullochs without any tags or numbers.
It's been posted in the past long ago but I suspect is no longer available.
I'm posting this on my phone so no info from me today. 
We'll need pix and discriptions of the differences in the motors.

I'd like to find a decent set of rear turbines, just the inner axle part.  I have the outer trim pieces.  If you have something let me know.  Thanks

Scroll out to see the global tracking of Santa's sleigh as he progresses around the world to leave presents for all the good little boys and girls.

Careful Santa, Q-9 Reapers cruise at that altitude.

even the flight data as you scroll down shows longs and lats.

  1955 "Little Dart" Go Kart on eBay.
Posted by: Mark Loraine - 12-19-2023, 07:54 AM - Forum: For Sale/Wanted - Replies (1)

Interesting go cart, I've been scheisse deep in small engines since the early 70's and I've never even seen a Briggs and Stratton model K.  Whats strange is the photo's were taken against a white background.

  Chainsaw power
Posted by: Terry Bentley - 12-18-2023, 05:25 PM - Forum: General - Replies (2)

Anyone want to take a guess at which model McCulloch this chainsaw this is? There is only one right answer. First one that is correct gets an ATABOY from Dave.

Dave will even include a Roundtuit if you can correctly identify both the engine model and make of this chassis.

  Nitpick this pic
Posted by: Terry Bentley - 12-18-2023, 05:07 PM - Forum: General - No Replies

Since a picture is worth a thousand words, see what you can pick out in this one.

This pic was taken at the 1959 GPKCA Nationals Labor Day weekend in Allentown Pa. It was a 100 mile race.

Engine on the #7 kart is a Power Products AH-81 mounted on a 1959 Bug driven by Capt "Red" Crise.
Bob Palmini came up with this idea as an early version of the Nassau panel.
Did you notice these karts even have bumpers?

Look over the picture and add what you can. What you see and what you might think is going on.
