Pedal Car Thunderbird

Check this out! In Hershey, this Itty Bitty Bird was auctioned off for charity. Believe it or not, taking this little pedal car, and creating a T-bird, was quite a restoration process, and it takes an inordinate amount of time and ingenuity. The finished product was auctioned off at the Hershey Car Show in 2008. It is just too pretty and unique to actually let a little one play with it day after day.

Mini-Mustang

This year, at the Hershey Auction, a replica of a Mustang called Ellie was auctioned for charity. She brought in around $2,000 at the auction and she’s a special miniature for someone to admire.
