Giant Rocket Car: Man Rebuilds Favorite Fairground Ride As 100mph Vehicle

Giant Rocket Car: Man Rebuilds Favorite Fairground Ride As 100mph Vehicle

When on the search for something interesting to look at, we stumbled upon the folds of the mind of Joe Tomaro as he relives his the best parts of his childhood on a daily basis.

A lot of people enjoy amusement park rides, and Joe enjoyed them so much that he decided to add them to his collection for a perpetual sense of enjoyment. He even transformed one into a drivable car!

We tune in as Barcroft Cars takes us on a tour of one of the builds that the 58-year-old constructed from the ground up as he transformed the old car from a locally famous Rocket Ship ride from a Cleveland, Ohio amusement park, which closed in 1969.

Check out the year long process as it has come to fruition atop a Chevrolet truck chassis right in Joe’s garage. If this isn’t a unique and personalized build, we frankly don’t really know what is!

The rocket chair below shows the results of sheer boredom in the shop!
