Man turns ambulance into giant Radio Flyer wagon

Posted: Updated:

BILOXI, MS (WKOW) -- Everyone has probably taken a ride in a Radio Flyer at some point as a child, but this is a new take on the popular wagon.

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

Recently, Ted Mangum rolled out his own version for a ride down the Mississippi coast.  

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.

The vehicle can hold up to 11 people and is legal on the road.

"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."
