My first car was a 1974 Camaro Type LT...that’s my little niece on the hood. Color has faded a bit...it was actually almost the same blue as my Little Blue Vette below...



My newest car purchase below...a 2016 Z51 3LT coupe...

My first car was a metallic green ‘64 Chrysler Newport coupe. My friends called it Supercar because of the pushbutton transmission. That was in high school, sorry no picture. But I do have one of my last high school and first college car. Mom bought me a red ‘69 Nova from a mechanic that she knew for $250...



I left it at school when I flew home, my roommate crashed it...wasn’t the same so I stepped up to a ‘71 Monte Carlo SS...




And we know where the story ends...with my first Corvette...

Any one into peddle cars that could give me any info on first picture, I think it's around a 1962 going by my age. Looks like it says BuickStudeabaker on front fender looks a little like Buick rear and Studebaker front. Been goggling about car after finding picture in mom's papers. Thanks for any thought on peddle car.

Keeps those pic's and stories coming !

My first car was a 1973 Datsun 240Z that I purchased in college in 1976...wish I still had it. My last car purchase was my first and only American car...2018 Corvette Stingray Z51. Lots of cars in between...Nissans, Toyotas, Alfa Romeo, BMWs. Still have a 2003 BMW 530i and a Toyota S-Runner...both manual transmissions.

Pretty sure that your pedal car was based on a 1950’s model.... prolly 1956-1958. Below is a 1962 Buick...
