Synopsis

A fantastic presentation of history and culture, of designers and automobiles. The author has explored family history and far beyond to explain how pedal cars were made, and why they ultimately lost favor in the marketplace. Workers who actually made the cars provide information that counts for collectors. Charming oral histories from the men and women who made hubcaps and welded little bodies come to life in photos and illustrations from the factories to the showroom floor. See hundreds of cars that are lovingly collected in all stages of repair, from rusty frames and rotting wheels to gleaming chrome and custom paint. It is the first compilation of photos and facts put together to tell a story about where the toys were made and how they continue to give joy to collectors, in addition to up-to-date pricing information.
