    Cool Big Wheel or Green Machine

    For those of you who grew up playing outside and would rather ride one of these than play Pong, which would have been your preferred ride and why?

    I spent quite a bit of time on my Big Wheel and loved it but then the Green Machine came out and I really liked the idea of the rear steer with levers.

    We used to get at the top of a hill and see who could go the fastest with the biggest spin out at the bottom potentially trying to achieve the beloved 360! OH YEAH!!

    Man you really had to watch out for the pedals on both at high speed!

    I probably still have road rash scars from those years!

    Green Machine for me.

    We had the big wheels, we could never keep the front wheels from splitting in half

    Green Machine. Hands down the best mechanical engineering marvel of the time. It was much easier to do a power slide with the Green Machine than the Big Wheel.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
