One of the ultimate cars for the younger generation

I think, on reflection, that my post (#35) may have been fitted with a motor (either electric or otherwise) and doesn't really fit into this thread.
It's possible a new topic for miniature powered cars could be created and I wouldn't wish to include these cars and reduce the importance of the true pedal car as we all remember it.

Sweet!

An airstream-like modern front end and a very tradional back area in one design - and it does look good.

That's quite a showroom!

Technically, PedalCar002 is a soap-box derby car; the pedal actuates a friction brake. I think...

Yes, well done!

Unfortunately this is not the puzzle area of the board, so no points for that! ;D
