This is a one-person buggy that I saw in an Amish settlement in Hardin County, Ohio. The Amish man who was riding it laughingly told me that the small buggy was his version of a motorcycle. In other words, sort of a "man cave" on wheels. In some Amish communities these small one-person carts go by the name "gig" and in other settlements people just call them carts. You probably could squeeze two people into this cart, but this is definitely meant for one. Notice the back of the cart just has grey reflectors. The wheels are larger than the cart! And there is just enough storage space in the front to carry a bucket of paint or maybe some tools. It'd definitely be a lower to the ground ride and seem like a fast journey than a higher-up heavier full-sized buggy.
