Steam Car , New boiler fund

$2,360 of $2,200 goal

Raised by 44 people in 8 months
The Kristie's Flyer  steam car was made about 10 years ago out of repurposed and recycled materials as part of The Neverwas Haul project. It's powered by a boiler made out of a used steam cleaner. Last year after our Christmas parade and event season, it stared showing signs of wear and became unsafe to operate. A family run company in Kentucky that makes steam cleaners, has agreed to make a replacement boiler with much needed improvements.  We expect this to cost about $2,200 with shipping.

If you've attended The Mad Hatter Christmas parade in Vallejo,CA or The Krampus  events in Los Angeles or the Bay Area, you may have seen St Nicholas driving our car. This is a unique and super fun creation that we'd like to keep on the road for all to share and enjoy.

The boiler was finished in time to be used in the LA krampus run. I stipend toast the burner so it runs cleaner. I may have to build a burner from scratch.
The steam car is going to be featured on Jay Leno's Garage in a upcoming episode. I will post details when I have them.

Thank you so much everybody! This is going much better than I thought it would so I am going to give the factory the go ahead to start the fabrication of the boiler.
This is going to give me several more weeks than I thought I would have to install and test everything.
