    Ok, I always thought these Fisher Price cars were lame, but this guy had the right idea. Kinda like a Fiat Topolino for kids :)

    Now that 39 is simply awesome.
    It is a lot smaller but the detail and workmanship looks very much like the dwarf creations by Ernie Adams.

  8. Found this old pedal car in my shed that I painted up for my daughter over 12 years ago, paint work is looking a big old but brings back many memories. ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1395038770.921769.jpg ImageUploadedByH.A.M.B.1395038820.668852.jpg

    Here is the Pedal car I started on about 10 years ago. This is what it looked like after I had worked on it then it got pushed back in the corner and set for a while. Then my wife mentioned she wanted to use it in some family pictures so that made me have to get it looking decent.

    Here it is after I got it all powder coated and the wheels all done. I still have all the body work to redo again. but at least its not going to rust away now!!

    Just painted my son's today, started with an original Murray comet but sold it for a good profit and cut up the speedway repop instead.

    Here is the Radio Flyer I am building for my son. Used an old child seat as the "driver's seat"

    Pay no attention to my crappy welds. . . You can't see the good ones !
