The kiddie “pedal” cars turn 80. The seven vintage cars, painted yellow and green, have been carrying children around and around since the 1930s.

I had a pedal car when I was a kid and I loved it. It was blue, came from Sears, and looked like a 60's Ford, maybe. I drove up and down the sidewalk all day, most of the time imagining I was on a Turnpike Ride somewhere.
I've always had a fascination with little car rides, and still climb on the Turnpike if I fit. Every once in a while I run across a restored, vintage pedal car and the price is outta sight. I don't know what I'd do with one, as I'm clearly to big to drive one now, but I'd still like one.
Anyway, good for them. Someone else might've thrown them in the trash.

Funny enough, so do I (I once had a dream as a kid that I owned one of the Model T replicas they have at Kings Dominion). I think those and the little Corvette replica sports cars may have contributed to my love for cars and driving as an adult, and sometimes I wonder if it was more than just coincidence that I used to own a Jeep Wrangler and a Miata (both drop-top cars that kinda loosely resemble the Model T and Corvette replicas).
