The National Automobile & Truck Museum in Auburn, Indiana has, in addition to a fine collection of cars and trucks, one of the country’s largest collection of model and toy cars, including a wide assortment of pedal cars. Some of them, like the Duesenbergs and Auburns must have been the toys of some very wealthy children (or are modern reproductions). Others are simpler. I think my favorite is the one modeled after a Graham Paige “Sharknose”. In the late 1960s, pedal cars grew out of fashion as kids wanted more modern riding toys like Mattel’s Big Wheel. Many of the metal pedal cars were thrown away. Which explains why they are now so collectible that even reproductions cost hundreds of dollars.
