    The soap box derby was like that at Knotts' - you actually raced another car on a little coaster type track. Used to be one of my favorites.

      ^ It could be Soap Box Racers, but they aren't really like Autopia cars.

      GrimmGreen, do you know approximately which area the park was in?

      Could it have been at Scandia? http://www.scandiafun.com/indexONT.htm

            Could use a few more specifics here... was this ride part of a theme park? Or was it by itself? Can you describe other rides near it, to give a better sense of location?

            At Castle Park in Riverside, there is a car ride that is somewhat similar to what you describe. They appear somewhat like Model T Fords. It was better known as the Tijuana Taxis at Knott's, and then it was moved to Castle Park, where they still operate today. Just went on them about three weeks ago!
            Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?

              Castle Park ... Home of the old-school Knott's.

                AAAAHHHH!!!! The old start a thread and never check back on it.
                "And yes, we implore EVERYBODY to follow the park rules. Having off-ride footage is great, but any still photo's or video's taken ON the coasters at SFMM are strictly against the rules. They are there for your (and everybody's) safety." "Six Flags doesn't allow ANY loose articles on their coasters, and they don't allow video taping on their coasters. " BUT, "​ This is not true. Six Flags does not allow ANY On-Ride video or pictures on the rides. The ONLY way is if you get explicit permission from Park Management." ???
