Originally constructed as a 3/8 scale model for display next to the full size car at General Motors' Motoramas, the car was destined for destruction until GM designer Harley Earl liberated the model and had it converted into an electric car for his grandchildren to play with. It is the only surviving remnant of GM's Club de Mer design.

About 15 vehicles in our local Car Club made a 50 mile road trip today for lunch and a visit to a private car collection.  It was a nice collection of unrestored cars.  Here are the pedal cars.

Here are pictures of our 2 pedal cars.  The first one was so rough (all we got was what you see) that I turned it into a light for the garage (the 2nd picture).  I purchased the blue one a couple of months ago.  The rust will be removed and it will be cleaned up but it will not be restored.

I did not get our 2nd pedal car pictured in the previous post that will not be restored.  Here it is.

Here is an update on our pedal car.  The first picture is as we bought it.  The next 2 show it with the drive train removed, enclosed bottom, a new steering wheel, a new and improved stance and paint cleaned up.

There is a huge auction this week up here, of someone's collection. I'm thinking an estate, but haven't been able to confirm that. Check out all the items, what a huge collection. Lots of pedal cars plus a massive amount of other items. Tom, please delete if this isn't okay. Posted just for the interesting items, not as an ad. It's always sad to think of all the years finding and acquiring a collection like this, just to see it get auctioned off.
