Default Another tot rod

So as I was putting stuff away I looked at this pedal car that I had started lowering and turning into a wagon years ago. I figured I might as well put it together before I lost pieces to it why not I have an extra half-hour. Career was already done so all I had to do was modify the front steering system. I cut an inch and a half out of it so I can get it to sit down a little bit and then I changed the track with about an inch so I can still turn it with it's new lower stance want to finish weld all the front and stuff and bolt it in but I will get that done tonight. Then I still have to build the handle so you can pull around

I like the way these pedal cars mimic actual cars. The HP looks like a 70 GMC, the blue one is either 70's Torino or Merc. I had one when I was 3 years old, got it for Christmas, still see it on old home movies.

It had the look of a 53 Olds, but had a little dump truck attachment on back, I guess it was an 53 Olds El Camino? The story goes by the end of Christmas day I somehow disassembled it and dad had to put it back together. I guess I had an early start at this stuff.

Interesting that's what you see, I see them totally different. The highway patrol looks like a mix of a 53-56 F-1 and a 1952 Ford car to me.

The blue one I see a 1960 Edsel Ranger with that iconic front grille.

That's what makes the hobby interesting, we all see different details.

When you don't know what you're doing, it's best to do it quickly.

And when Iím gone, you can call me foolish but hopefully not boring. I will have lived.

The more I learn about women, the more I like my car.

You know, I was thinking the 60 Edsel at first on the blue one, I know it looks like something, possibly a 59 Pontiac like soltz said. And looking again, I think you are right about the 50's Fords on the HP, especially since that one was probably made in the 50's
