Go vintage or go home

Liam got this old pedal car for Christmas. (Thank you Mike and Debra.) As an antique fanatic and mom-who-hates-loud-light-up-pieces-of-plastic-laden-in-lead, I couldn't be happier. Not only will this little car see endless hours of pedaling, it'll look great as kitschy decor in his future big-boy room.

To hear David's dad tell the story, it all started when David was a little boy. He looked and looked for one but came up empty. I'm sure these days a quick eBay search would bear fruit, but that sort of robs it of the specialness, don't you think? Thirty years later, this car was found at an antique store and given a fresh coat of paint for a much-beloved grandson.
