David and Travis Checkout a Buckaroo Go-Kart

This was in 1958. We lived in the country in Victoria county. Our mother won this go cart at a Billups gas station. It was called a Buckaroo. It had a reverse. I haven't seen one with a reverse since. It would run 18 miles per hour. I don't know what kind of gas mileage. Back then then dad bought the gas, so we didn't worry much about it. It was top of the line in 1958. Travis and I drove the little car probably a 101,000 miles. -- David Calliham, 8/21/2014
