Ten thousand dollars[?] And it isn't even restored! Well as P.T. Barnum used to say, "There's a sucker born every minute!"

Fascinating story that I remember from my childhood, being from Syracuse. I haven't heard about the "Cardiff giant" or thought about it in years. I'll have to ask around about what became of it.

You are right, Ron is our resident wagon pro.:)

A little food for thought. Take a good look at the engineering required for this beast. Very wide rims with heavy steel tires. I would be interested in its empty weight. Fully loaded, it would probably weigh several tons! Good storage is critical for the continued long life of these wagons. Too dry...and it cracks. Too wet and it rots. And then there is termites, carpenter bees, powder post beetles, and carpenter ants. Very fortunate that it is here at all!

I'm glad they built the Lark Wagons with steel... even if they do rust. Although, a woody Lark Wagon would be waaaay cool.
