Of the thousand and one ways to get kids involved in old cars, what better way to do so than to simply give them an old car? Don’t trust your wee ones with a full-size old car? Then perhaps a kiddie car will be enough to excite their passions until then. It worked for me – I was doing brodies in a pedal car fire engine before kindergarten, and look at me now! (Note: Upon further contemplation, maybe my parents should have cut down on my sugar intake when I was a kid.) That said, the same seller in California recently listed this pair of kiddie cars – a Jaguar XK120, and a Triumph TR5 – for sale on Hemmings.com. About the Jaguar, the seller writes:
1956 Jaguar “Child’s Car” BATTERY OPERATED. 12 Volt. Crated ready to ship. Measures approx. 6 1/2 feet long.
And about the Triumph:
TRIUMPH Pedal Car–TR 5, (I think)…White Exterior with blue interior. Excellent condition. Moves Well.
Just think of what trouble I could have gotten into had my parents given me a battery-powered kiddie car rather than a pedal car!
