THE MYSTERY OF THE DISAPERANCE OF CAPTAIN JACK'S ROCKET POWERED GO KART HAS BEEN SLOVED
After 4 years of Jack campaigning his Rocket Powered Go Kart a cross the country, he decided to sell his Go Kart to Ramon Alvarze and Russell Mendez, who lived close to Jacks home, in Tampa Florida, Jack felt it was time to do something else, so he used that money to buy a commercial fishing boat.
For many years Jack wondered what ever happened to his Rocket Powered Go Kart. 34 years latter Jack was up in Minneapolis to see his friend Ky Michaelson, to look at his collection of Rocket Powered Vehicles. When Jack went back to Florida he decided it was time to look for his record setting Go Kart. Jack started searching Google to see if there was any information, he ran across a site where this guy claimed to own it; there were pictures of him sitting in it. The guy said he was going out to Florida with the Kart and he would stop by and show it to Jack, as it turned out Jack ran across another site that talked about a car show in Florida. That featured Elvis Presley’s Mustang car, and a Rocket Powered Go Kart in it.
The car show was put on by the Marion County Sheriffs Department. Jack called the Sheriff's Department and found out the man who brought the Go Kart to the show was married to Ramon Alvarze daughter, Celeste, Ramon passed away, a three years ago, the Go Kart was stored at her place. After a couple of weeks of negotiating with Celeste Jack bought the Go Kart.
