Here are mine. The rusty one i think is from am amusement park, weight a ton. Look me and my uncle to lift it in the bed. Has a 3h motor and a sorta straight axle setup in the back with the motor and rear "suspension". It sits covered up in my yard, sat likethat fir 30 years before I got it. The other one is my mom's when she was a kid. Lasted her and her brother and cousins, then lasted me and my cousins. My great aunt gave away the police car they had to go with this one. She gave it to the house painters "cause they liked it" and then she paid them to paint the house too - oh well.

I'll have to dig mine out. Have a 1960's western Flyer Fire chief car and a 1940's american flyer wagon buried under al l the shit in my basement. I've had the car since I was about 2, and the wagon was my mother's when was little.

I actually picked up parts I've needed for years for the car at the pedal car shop next door to UVT during one of the Mike Meets last year.

Here's the one I built for my daughter. The only "stock" parts are the tub and the handle. Everything else I fabricated from scrap metal and aluminum from work.

This is my girls ride. It's only this past week shes able to reach the pedals.
I have big plans for it. I would like to lower it and give it a realy cool paint job, but I don't know how to go about the lowering part. Do I just throw the front end thats there now and make a new one. I would also like it if she can still ride in it. She loves this thing and I see her washing it every day.She rides it atleast 5 times a day just in the living room. I saw her 1 time she took off the rear wheel and had it sitting up on a shoe box.
I got it at Zellers for 145$ the last one there.

I used to buy her all kinds of things like that when she was in her first year. Now that she's almost 2 it's harder to find cool little dresses and things.
This is a wagon I saw at the Iowa good guys show last summer.
I took the day off work and I loved this thing. The guy had 2 of them there.

I just dug a new plastic one out of a local trash heap here. Not old school at all but rolls nice and could be useful. If I had a damn camera that worked I'd post a pic. Jesus save me, I just said I'd do something for those hellions and they are not even mine.

Here's the one I built for my son when he was about a year old. Too bad his mother backed over it before he got big enough to enjoy it. (Sorry about the bad quality of the pic, it's been sitting around for a while...my son turned 31 a couple of days ago.)

Thanks, the thing about it is that I saved the bent body and it is still sitting at my Mom's house in her garden shed. My son spotted not too long ago and he asked me if that was the one he had when he was little. I didn't think he would remember because he was only about 2 when it got crunched but, he said "wasn't it black?" He wants to try his hand at resurrecting it for my grandson. I told him "go for it....it's yours.
