North Carolina is a fine place. The Tar Heel State is home to some storied collegiate basketball teams, a partial home to some of the nation’s finest military units, and likewise home to what must be the planet’s largest motorized shopping cart.
The Got To Be NC Big Cart is cavernous enough to carry a family of six and its bags of groceries to and from the Piggly Wiggly supermarket. Powered by a Chevy 396 V8, it is also powerful enough to make the trip fully loaded. Constructed by the Old North State’s agricultural department as a way to advertise the state’s fruits, vegetables and legumes, the 15-foot long cart makes a statement wherever it goes.
