1938 Bantam....Well, sort of!


Recommended Posts

I've had this toy pedal car for Lord only knows how long. I remember picking it up at a garage sale somewhere for $5.00. I have no idea how old is. It was originally a red primer color and I've been promising my little girl that she could have her own "army jeep" someday. Well, I finally found a few extra hours in my afternoon and decided to play. It still needs one of the pedal arms re-attached and theres some touch-up to do here and there, but she's pretty much done. So here, for all to enjoy, is my 4 year old, Olivia doing her best impression of the only honorary female paratrooper to ever grace the 82nd ABD, Marlina Dietrich!

Great photo and it is nice to see we can mix a little fun in with our collecting. thumbsup.gif

I agree, I hope my little one will appreciate this stuff as much as I do down the road as well.
