Since we first launched Show & Tell in June of 2010, thousands of people have posted photographs and short stories about things in their collections. When someone has a question about an item, they label it as an Unsolved Mystery. Here’s one of our favorites.
It looks like a Vespa, but…
Mork is a recent visitor to Show & Tell, and this visitor’s first contribution reads as follows: “Can anyone tell me anything about this vintage pedal car? make, value? Thanks for your help.” We’d call it a pedal scooter, and to our eyes it appears to be a toy rather than something one would use to, say, commute to the train station or ride to the store for a half gallon of milk. Beyond that, though, we’re as eager to learn more about this unique piece as Mork!
Tell us what you think
Have you ever seen or heard about a piece like this? Is its similarity to a Vespa scooter a coincidence, or did Vespa make these for kids? If you have the answer to these and other questions, leave a Comment at the bottom of Mork’s Vintage Vespa like pedal car page.
