It's always fun to take a peek in Tony's garage. You couldn't fit a horse in there but he's restored at least one classic Vespa in there and now he's working on Go Karts. He loads them in his pickup and drives up to the Dixon Speedway where the family takes them around the track.

Chrome Pedal. A rare kart being restored.

That shiny pedal is the accelerator (the kart can hit 90 mph). To the left is the steering mechanism. And to the right is the front wheel.

This particular kart has some royal blood, designed by Art Ingels (if we remember correctly), the father of karting. Here's a tour of Ingels's first production kart made in 1956, which is quite similar to Tony's later model:

We shot Tony's kart as a Raw file at f5.6, 1/80 second and ISO 1600 at full zoom on the 14-42mm kit zoom and processed it in Photoshop CC 2014.
