Flintstone Car


  • 2 cable drums
  • 2 x stout staves 2.5m (8ft) long
  • 5 x staves 1m (3ft) long
  • 2 x steel tubes 1m (3ft) long
  • 14 light cords or sisal for lashings


The steel tubes are placed through the cable drums and the two longer staves lashed between them, either side of the drums.

The staves should be on top of the steel tubes for maximum support.

The 1m staves should be lashed between the two staves to one end of the rolling chassis to form a seat.

To use the Flintstone cars: Sit on the cross members and use your feet to propel the car along whilst shouting YABADABADOO in true Fred Flintstone style.
