Mini Oil Tank
"I built it from the ground up using a narrowed Datsun rear end and steering sector. The rest was all hand-built with steel tubing and light gauge steel," says Mincoff.
The top half of the fuel tank hinges up for access to the 5 hp Briggs & Stratton gas engine. The rear wheels are 3-wheeler "flat trackers" which Mincoff selected because they make the truck look like it's fitted with duals. The cab is big enough to accommodate an adult driver.
"You have to see the look on kids' faces to appreciate the wonderful sense of accomplishment you get in building a rig like this," says Mincoff.
