I spend alot of time searching for pedal cars on the net, sales, antique shops. You name it, I probably have hunted for them there. 🙂 One night I was looking at Craigs list for an unrelated item. It accured to me that I had never hunted craigs list for pedal cars. I always assumed it was a glorified garage sale. Boy was I mistaken.
I put a search in for pedal cars. Granted, there was not much in my area, but I expanded the search to different states. I found a few cars that were very nice but the price was out of site. I kept looking and came across this super nice orignal little pedal racer. I have seen a few before but they were so beat up they were not worth restoration. Missing parts and rust got the best of those.
The picture showed an 100% orignal, 1928 Steelcraft “New Star Racer”. I just smiled. I wrote the owner and negotiated a deal and it was on its way to Minnesota. It was only missing hubcaps. :)))))))) I had four orignal!!! This little baby only set me back $300. including shipping. Well worth it to me. 🙂
Remember everyone! They are everywhere, anywhere at any time. Keep looking. They are still out there. You just need to seek them out. :)))))))))
