Wink Another Famous?

Got this guy today! A die cast model 5HP Famous to go with my model Titan, which I posted about in the lugs and cleats forum. Now I have to make a cart for it. Any ideas on how to go about it?

Now I'll have two Titans and Famous' at shows!

Link to model Titan

Very nice. At least you won't have to get a bigger trailer to haul these.

I'm pretty sure it was in this section and it was probably a few months ago.

I use the Gade model trucks on some of my tiny engines with good results, and other items I find at the "FLEA" market from time to time.

Is that a Nashville 1992? and did you get the box it came in? Hang on to the box they bring more later on maybe, if so. I found one at a flea market one day for 10.00, On fleabay they bring a lot more than that now. Someday I want to look up what all Ertl made, I have a Waterloo boy from Nashville, and a JD that is from the 80,s not the one that has the crank backwards or the fill plug on the right, son had those, Dad used to sell them and had 2..... Neat looking sitting on the TV oak box....

Rich: Just a little item I picked up someplace along the way . Not sure if its a Nashville item, never had a box for it. The skids say John Deere 1 1/2E Moline, Ill on them. I put it on a set of Gade trucks for something to keep me busy .
