    Did this one up prior to my first grandson being born. The leaf work and striping was done by Hot Rod Jen in PA. She does incredible work.

    I posted pics of a pedal car I was doing for the Border Patrol Museuem back when this thread started. I finished it and have saved some pictures of the finished piece.
    I understand it is available to get your kids picture in while at the museum. Pedal Car 004.jpg Pedal Car 007.jpg Pedal Car 002avtr.jpg

    Not kids or grandkids. Don't have any of those. This is me at about age 2. About 1960. My grand father won this car in a raffle. But my uncle was too big for it. It sat around until I came along. Than it was mine! Don't really know what happened to it. But I think it ended up in the county dump!!!!!! Sorry about the picture. It's a picture of an old picture. 001.JPG

    My grandson about 5 years ago. Got this at Target in the clearance isle for $60.00 and had to have it cause it matches my Merc.

  17. We are now proud grand parents to three grand children. I started this post and have shown the 65 Mustang & the '32 Ford that my 1st two grand children received for Christmas.
    Since I retired last year, I had more time to do a custom build. I found this aprox. 10 year old Murry Sad Face pedal car on Kijiji and it would be the basis for the build. Toyo Tires would give one of these to each of their dealers and they would be raffled off to a lucky buyer of Toyo tires. I bought it off a guy who had bought it off the lady who had won it. I don't think the pedal car was ever played with, but it did show signs of improper storage with signs of rust starting. I disassembled the pedal car, sand blasted it and painted it Texaco Red as I was restoring a 39 Tall Tokheim pump in Texaco colours. Powder coated the pitted chrome parts white, added some air brush and cuatom lettering and Santa brought it to our grandson Jack this Christmas 2016. He loved it and I loved building it!
