If you are my generation (baby boomers), what do you think of when you hear the word “go-kart”?
Two things come to mind for most of us. First, living in a rural rural area, it was normal for us to have (or know someone with) a go-kart. I don’t remember which store actually sold it, but I do remember some friends having one and running around farms and fields with it. No, maybe it was a homemade go-kart. I don’t remember it very well.
Another thing that reminds me of is the go-kart race that I got to see up close when the County Fair came to town. And the demolition derby was a big hit at the fairs of my youth.
