Did someone here really turn a shopping cart into a roof rack?

First, we know the shopping cart was legally obtained, right? (Oh course it was–just kidding.)

Details shared by the OP? Zero.

But go here for a photo that might well launch the latest New Thing.

Looks like this may have required two not-at-all-questionably attained shopping carts in its construction. Hail satin, indeed.

I like it but sadly they did away with the kid seat.  Hilarity would ensue.

I love it. It's likely much more sturdy than the $100 Chinese special I bought off Amazon

Ha, thanks for the recognition! They were acquired legally! The girlfriend works at a haunted attraction and she asked the owner for a pair of minis. They fit in my LSe30, one in the trunk one on the passenger seat once I chopped off the legs.

I still have it! (well, both of them). I planned to make it a functioning half flap thing but my deadline loomed. Obviously it's too short for a child, but that red plastic flap thing would be awesome to see up there. Sometime in the future it'll happen.

Yes and it's totally awesome.

Totally awesome! I'd love to build something similar with a big kart from Sam's Club, legally of course.

My mind immediately went to a guy in the back standing up holding on to the "handle"  with the truck blasting over sand dunes.  An AK may or may not have been included in that picture in my head.  :-)

This sentence leaves me with many more questions than answers.
