Vintage pedal cars - your posts are wanted!
« on: April 17, 2011, 11:32:28 AM »
I do know that some of you guys out there have crammed their HDīs with tons of car photos.

Iīd like to start a vintage pedal car thread out here, because we had some puzzles with those kidīs dreams of our grandfatherīs generation.

Today Iīve found an amazing lot of original photographs with cars and some with pedal cars at a flea market in belgium.

The four "voitures a pedales" here stem from a private photo album.
It would be great if anyone could identify the makes of those exclusive toys from the past.

And please post photos of other pedal cars here, too (old puzzles?).

Rather more mundane, but I still haven't managed to identify the pedal car I had as a kid. It was bought secondhand in the late 1950s. I've had it posted on oldclassiccar.com for a while, but had no response.

The first reaction when people see it is that it's probably a Triang, but I've never seen another one of this design. Any ideas?

I drove this one. Didn't make any photos of my own, though, so here is the eBay one.

Here are few pedal cars I shot in 2008 at the oldtimer exhibition.

The Bugatti is a real Type 52, I suppose, but probably already electric, not pedal as it was initially.

@faksta:

I really like those Moskvich pedal cars. I think I have a magazine essay about the production of those somewhere in my collection.
I recall that they have been assembled by hand in  the same factory where the real scale Moskviches have been built, too.
