I'm a little obsessed with pedal cars. I've always told hubby that as soon as we have our first child I'm immediately purchasing a cool pedal car for him/her. Those vintage pedal cars are the best ( 1956 and 1967 Corvettes). How do I know this, well, I grew up around classic cars. My father owned a classic car business and I worked for my dad since I was practically in diapers. He eventually moved onto to Formula One cars for Ferrari.
I have a ton of useless information trapped in my head. Point out a vintage car and I can name the make and model. I use to order parts for our family business and know classic cars like the back of my hand. I've shocked men over the years by the amount of knowledge I possess. When I was a teenager I hated classic cars and pretty much any car in general. I didn't realize that I grew up with a unique background. All my friends worked at the mall or cosmetic counters and I was stuck delivering cars to clients. Sometimes Ferrari's, Mercedes, Jaguar, etc.. but all vintage. These cars were extremely expensive to transport due to the insurance policies and I use to drive them at age sixteen. I can't remember ever not being able to drive a stick. Now I embrace my unusual upbringing and find myself longing to own one of these classic beauties. My father has since retired and I've grown up, married, and moved away from home. However, I don't believe my passion for vintage cars will ever die. It's truly a love affair if you get bit.
Check out this really awesome pedal plane. How cool is that?
I could totally see myself buying this one for our future children. This is so us it's ridiculous. I'll have to show hubby and insist that our future children must have this pedal car.
However, if the children have a pedal car than so will mama. This would be the ultimate pedal car for me. A father's friend, Jim, owns a black 1957 Mercedes 190 SL convertible with red leather upholstery. It's a dream. Yes, I could definitely settle for the pedal car.
