        I am no expert (by a long shot) on pedal cars but I do have an interest. For my '48 Business Coupe, I have a matched color Murray Champion pedal car that was patterned after the '47-'49 Studebakers. Also, I have another Murray pedal car that I modified to match my '55 Truck by cutting the nose off and adding a crude grille and I cut the rear to install a dual wall pickup bed with a working tailgate.

        Unlike Diecast cars, pedal cars are more like caricatures of the cars they represent, and therefore do not have to be exact replicas. So the makers used some creativity in producing them.

        I would love to have a Bullet Nose pedal car to display with my Land Cruiser. Two manufacturers come to mind regarding Bullet Nose pedal cars. One is Moskvich (Soviet Russia), and the other is Giordani, (Italy).

        As far as I know, there were no U.S. manufactured Bullet Nose pedal cars.

        I keep my pedal truck displayed with the truck and this time of year a stuffed Snoopy doll dressed in his goggles & Santa hat occupies the driver's seat while hauling a Christmas tree. He was a big hit at our family Thanksgiving gathering yesterday.

                It was filmed in 1956 in Italy.
