    These are not custom made peddle cars, but they are very cool, both of them seen at the Portland swap meet years ago.

    Recently Puttsey and his Dad Paul came to our Touch-a-Truck @ Riverdale Presbyterian. Paul explained to me that Puttsey never leaves home, unless Dad let’s him bring is ride. Kids from 8 months to 88 loved it. Thanks Paul & Puttsey for making our day. Oh yeah, Puttsey’s SLED is a World of Wheels AWARD winner! Yep the Beautiful Green PU is Paul’s and yes it is Gorgeous.

    Sorry for the misspelling of Puttsy’s name. I stand corrected AGAIN! Doggone first mistake I’ve made in the last 36 seconds. Yes Dear, I know you were telling me not to spell Puttsy’s name like that. I know, no “e”, I got that.....geez....sorry....

    A friend of mine found this in a barn. The owner said it had been in there for 60 years. It ran on a maytag washing machine motor sadly someone got the motor, but I am looking for a replacement

    Hey guys I have a question about tires for pedal cars. My boys have a Murray Super Tot Rod and I bought some replacement tires from Speedway and the rears lasted maybe a week before they split down the middle. I contacted Speedway way and they sent another pair but the lasted a week too. Is there anyplace that sells a better quality tire that wont fail when it gets used like its supposed to?

  16. My Grampa bought me a pedal car in 1953 so I bought my first grandson a similar one from Speedway a few years ago. He and his little brother have gotten a lot of enjoyment out of theirs but then haven't totally wasted it like I did mine. My dad was welding my broken pedal car parts every week!

  18. I gave my granddaughter Ruthie this Kidalliac for Christmas. I've given her mom a couple. So we decided to give this one to Ruthie. I given all my kids, and grandkids a pedal car that I've restored. They can pass them down to their kids one day too. Ron.... 20191227_080722.jpeg

    we built this for my daughters first birthday. Always wanted to do lace paint so what better than for my daughter. Pearl in the clear coat and hand pin striping by a young guy near me.
    It has been modified as a stroller till she can actually pedal it.
