It's just a rough estimate, but the slab probably doesn't know the the vehicle is there.

There are two take-aways from my non-expert analysis.

1) I'm probably full of $hit, and
2) I have way too much time on my hands.
Definitely option two applies.

This is so cool! A "kids" replica that apparently could hit 30mph! It had a Honda GX120 4 stroke with a 2 spd manual with reverse! I never knew this existed back in the day....wonder how much they were
