This carriage can't turn into a pumpkin

Jerry Caldwell's carriage won't be turning into a pumpkin -- because it already is a pumpkin.

The retired IBM exec decided his town of Cheswold, Del., needed something big for a tourist attraction.

So, he's built what could be the world's biggest pumpkin carriage.

While he's grown 400-pounders in the past, Caldwell decided to construct his big orange ride out of fiberglass.

The 7-foot-tall pumpkin carriage carries up to eight passengers and even has hydraulic brakes.

He says he's contacted the Guinness people to see if his pumpkin carriage sets a new record.
