Going through the posts today I came upon the one regarding the miniature Bugatti and it brought back some memories of a car I did for my grandson Jacob. It had been purchased at a garage sale several years prior and just sat in the shop awaiting restoration. There was no manufacturer's name on it but it was originally done in the livery of Kroger's Grocery Stores.Electric powered it had two batteries in it that apparently had been wired to provide two speeds forward(slow & slightly faster).I re-wired it so that both were activated at once. The body was glass fiber reinforced plastic and was in good shape. After cleaning off all the decals I sanded and primed it and shot it with a royal blue base. I had recently re-painted the lettering and striping on the 1972 Indy 500 winner(a McLaren M-14B driven by Mark Donahue)and decided to make this one a semi-clone of it. Not dead nuts perfect but similar. The original had some striping on it so I added it and a bit more to Jake's car. A little bit about Jake: He is mildly autistic and very smart. He is an avid NASCAR and hot rod fan and his favorite TV shows are the Mecum and similar auto auctions. At 6 years old he could name every NASCAR driver by name and car number and when my son took him to a local cruise night there was rarely a car there he couldn't identify. When I presented the car to him he wasn't yet 3 years old and it took him about 10 minutes to learn how to drive the car around the neighborhood.Top speed on it was about 10 mph. Anyway we loaded the car in the back of our Pontiac G3 and headed out to Massachusetts where he lives. The look on his face when we got the car out and he realized it was his says it all. The hardest thing that day was attempting to remove him from it;even after the batteries were dead. Jacob will be ten next month and he has given his car to my great grandson and daughter for them to enjoy now.
