I had me a peddle car way back in the early 50's, and can still recall the feeling of elation and pride at being able to sit in it and make it go where I wanted. But that all went by the wayside, once I could sit a bike and really cover some ground!

Wonder what mine would have been worth were it still around today?!?!

Thanks for posting the videos Bruce.

Kinda makes the steam hobby look cheap!  :)

How much was that tall Buddy L Crane in the first video (outside).  Looked like it had an electric motor.

Perhaps I should dig out my old Tonka Toy fire truck, and definitely my Marvelous Mike, which I suspect is rather rare. Who knows, another hundred years and they may be worth the big bucks as well ........ or not!

Had a large toy logging truck that I suspect was Buddy L, though not really sure. Also had a nice large metal, nearly scale MGTD, but my brother's kids pretty well took care of those cool toys, and I don't mean took good care of them.

Charlie the crane which was a rock separator of some sort was $600 and had a brand new box of chutes to the right of it, it did have electric motor at the base which looked like a separate engine power plant.

I used to tow mine in my wagon behind my bicycle like I was taking it to the race track, lol. Thanks for reminding of that Bruce.

Fantastic Bruce!

I have some old home movies of me peddling mine around.
