I had to dig up my old Mack brush and pull some lines. I'm about as rusty as this car is!





I've got the Fire chief version of that car. My cousin had the police version with a light like that. Mine has a bell but it was lose and started hogging out hte holes in the body so it's not on mine right now. It's starting to show a little rust and is dirty as hell from being in the basement for a long time but The guy at the pedal car museum next door to UVT in Hershey talked me out of refinishing it a few years ago.

I don't know what this one was originally as it didn't have a light or anything and no holes in it anywhere (besides rust holes, that is). I just decided to make it a police car because we did up a fire engine for his cousin. This one came painted red with golden arches on the side and hood - an attempt at making it look like a NASCAR car.

Here's what makes the effort worthwhile:

Default Re: Pedal Car's and Wagons

I have been wanting to build a pedal car wagon. I found a body last fall at Carlisle. I been looking off & on for the wagon parts but I wanted the steering to turn like a car and not like a center pivit on a wagon. I just found all the parts at Maple Grove swap meet for stupid cheap (score). I mocked the body and the wheels up to get a look at it for an idea.




This is what I'm trying to achive.







The wheel base is the only way to get the car to sit anything close to the ground. I tried the wheels under the body but it sits way to high for me. What you guys think?

Got this peg perego gaucho from a friend of mine a few months back, I decided to do it up a bit to more suit my little girl.
Here she is driving it with her broken arm. Before paint

And here it is after. I am going to do a 4" lift tomorrow or the next day. And then I want to hook up all the lights and do a 24v conversion.
After

My oldest son had the Peg Perego bug vert when he was small. It had adjustable drum brakes, pull-out fm radio, etc. It was cool. We paid $499+ for it in 1995. I ditched the stock battery and put in a 12v deep-cycle battery. I gave it away (he was 6 and never drove it anymore) and then about a month later we found out my wife was pregnant again.

Well, at least with SOME things.



I think I scared Scott's wife a bit when I said we needed to "blow some shit up" at Scott meet.

I love the fireworks availableto the public in PA now!

Saw this at the Hershey show this week. Very cool, but a bit steep at $4,200.

My old man just scored us a body to use for building one for my daughter. Super stoked! Anyone have any good places to go for pedal car parts?

My dad also still has my old radio flyer wagon, might have to steal that back after seeing this thread....
