Jamestown man builds Radio Flyer car

JAMESTOWN, N.C. -- A Jamestown man recently fulfilled a childhood dream - he built his own Radio Flyer car.

Ed Ingle transformed his 1982 Datsun pickup truck into a Radio Flyer car that draws attention wherever it goes.

It all started when Ingle's wife, Leonora, saw a similar Radio Flyer automobile on YouTube.

"I said this is so neat... and we looked at it and I said 'Do you think we could make one?" Leonora said. In a weak moment, Ed said yes.

It was all downhill from there.

Ed, who is a retired engineer, started building without any plans.  A year later, the red Radio Flyer car was rolling on roads around Jamestown.

The car made it's first big appearance in last year's Christmas Parade.
