Now this is odd: apparently, some people gather in person, in a single place and on a fixed date, and even require the purchase of tickets in advance, all to auction off items of some rarity and value. No website, no PayPal, no Buy it Now, no nothing. Cuh-razy.
So crazy, it makes the idea of spending hundreds of craftsman-hours customizing, finishing and transforming eleven old-timey Champion Comet pedal cars into unique works of automotive toy art seem as sober as an actuary.
But there you go. On October 8th in Hershey, Pennsylvania, RM Auctions is conducting a charity auction to benefit the Museum of the Antique Automobile Club of America, at which point this glorious fleet of pedal cars will be dispersed to the four corners of America's four-car garages.
