    Where do you all get your parts from? All I know for parts is Speedway motors, and maybe ebay.
     
  10. Cowboys and Kidillacs is another source I use often. He carries a bunch of odd stuff not listed on his website. You just have to call and inquire..

    Corvair horn ring, tucked into a 50 Pontiac taillight bucket (steering column). Wanted something that gave more interior room than a full steering wheel.

    It is a Wii Nunchuck that is wired into an Ardunio Uno PLC controller and I wrote the software that reads the data from the Wii Nunchuck and controls the Servo, Lights and horn.

    Not really too much of a custom but functional. It's put away now until its called back into service again. That's my oldest grandson riding in it in 1991, todays is his 24th birthday.

    I restored an Atomic Missile for a customer a while back, this is how it turned out.
    [​IMG]

    A couple months ago, I received an e-mail from Left Field productions. They found the missile on my website and wanted to use a picture of it on The American Restoration show. I agreed, took some more pictures of it, and waited. That episode aired last week. Here is a link to the build. The episode it was on is at the bottom of the page.

    In 1956 we had a white Murray Supersonic Jet. You did a great restoration job.

    I never realized how popular petal cars were or how collectable they are.

    One guy that is a customer of mine has a very rare collection of petal cars and when I admired them he showed me one that he paid over $20,000 dollars for because it was one of three known to exist in the world.

    I find it really interesting learning which ones are worth a fortune and which ones are not.

    IMO pedal cars that have been restored have one major issue in that very few are restored to original as-bought paint scheme because there is so few color reference photos to go by from the late 1950s. Most of the Murray pedal cars of the 1950s I've seen have had high quality restoration jobs with final paint schemes that look different from the as-bought style.

    Thanks.

    The internet helps a bunch when it comes to information and color pics. What you can't find are the details that happened on the assembly line. Not many were perfect. Nearly all of the originals I have seen, the graphics or stripes were off a little somewhere. Most of the restored ones are nearly perfect.
