Merry Christmas: This is 1906 Napier racing car any child would enjoy that was made by the Toledo Metal Wheel Co.
Wow, that is schweet.
David, You would be interested to know a full scale authentic replica of that Napier Racer was built in Australia years ago. It is known as Sampson. I will try to get some pictures to compare with the pedal car!
Here is a link to an article on the car!
And today we have plastic Jeep Barbi ! Don't you love "progress" ?

Yes thanks for posting that, I have known about this replica for quite some time.
On The Old Motor yesterday we covered one of the Napier record setting cars at Daytona Beach in 1906 and you can also link to the 1905 record car and watch a video of it and others.
Now that is too cool! Never heard of it, and yet Toledo is only 50 miles west of me! You'd almost think one of 'em would have shown up around here over the years. Guess I need to get out more!
