Yep but cheaper...lol
this is a picture of me in 1977 on my new pedal car for christmas 8)
i was really bummed when i came of age to wish my parents hadn't gotten rid of it.
i was looking for yeeeeears to find one just like it. i finally found ( and bought ) one last year on craigslist.
i drove to new hampshire to get it . i am stoked to have another. brings me back :mrgreen:
Here's on e of mine ,all rusty and Ratty ! i'll post thee other one's as soon as i get pic,s ,,love this thread !
Looks like a amf haVe not seen many of these. Nice MB
After a couple people flaked on buying it, this was donated to the neighbors daughter(until she outgrows it).
Dropped 4" from stock but still fully functional. The splash aprons were shaped to look correct and molded into the frame after those pictures but I haven't had this for a few years, thus, I have no recent pictures.
My dad has one of those Dr. Pepper cars' but it looks like it was run over at one time.. I'll see if I can find it and take a picture
I have a fire truck as well. Plans to make it into a rat for my youngest but having a hard time finding parts..it just sits on my shelf awaiting a new life.
Here's another ,still waiting to collect parts for, i had "karfer" lay on some pinstripe for me !

That last video is cool, I wonder if you could still buy one for $500
Alas, no- most 'Adult' Pedal Cars are nearly $2000-$3000 range...
One possible exception might be this site:
Costs range from a Parts Kit at under $450 (plus buying PVC and investing sweat) to under $20 for the plans alone and trusting yourself to manufacture a few bits yourself) The DIY cars on display at the site are mostly PVC, bicycle parts, a few homemade brackets...and sweat.
Mind you, if we go DIY we could do worse than a Mochet:
Anyone want to translate the plans from French?
Here's an updated Pedal car inspired by the Fantom:
DIY might be the way to go, here.
Oh, and before I forget, we have RRB's own Plycar working on a nice Pedal car as well:
Still can't wait to see the Mk II in action, and the MK I is awesome in it's own right.
