And... here is some of our original literature for one of several versions of these Packard pedal cars. There was a whole series of these made with amazing, varying details.

Also note in the details that this one has real suspension, windshield wiper, tilt steering wheel, adjustable spotlight, combination tail light and brake light... and more. Oooo! It also had a special sound effects device called a "Hummer" (no relationship to the modern military vehicle) to make it SOUND like a motorcar!

Original literature courtesy of National Bicycle History Archive of America (NBHAA.com).

Adjusted for inflation $36.00 in the mid 20's would be around $600 today.

A few more pedal cars and Blue Streak ads.

Great stuff... we also have numerous Toledo "Blue Streak Line" catalogues. Some are in magnificent color!
