Man turns ambulance into giant Radio Flyer wagon

BILOXI, MS (WPVI) -- It's the ride that runs on smiles.

A car collector in Biloxi, Mississippi said he was inspired after stumbling upon a supersized Radio Flyer wagon being built online.

This weekend, Ted Mangum rolled out his own version for a ride down the coast and a great many more people inside.

Mangum said he converted an old ambulance into the motorized wagon, gleaming bright red in the sun.

"All I ever had in mind when I built it was bringing it to Cruisin' the Coast, riding up and down the beach, and I'm having a ball with it," Mangum said.

"I've owned almost every kind of car that you can own, but I've had the most fun with this in four years than all the rest of them put together."

He's mum on whether it runs on gas or diesel, but frankly, does it matter? We just want to climb aboard this Red Flyer!
