This pedal car was raffled off on Christmas Eve in 1924 by a German storekeeper. Three-year old Gordon Clark won teh $200 toy and played with it for several years until it was set in storage in his Grandmother's attic.

A lifetime later, a 67-year old Gordon stumbled across it in the same old farmhouse attic. Surviving time, the Paige Roadster was, and is still, in spectacular condition.
One of the more expensive pedal cars of its time (when new Ford Model T's sold for less than $300!), the Alamite Paige Roadster offered many extra features for its driver.

A working convertible top, a real trunk (or "boot"), and an opening driver's door were a few of the body details. Cowl lights, glass lantern and tilting "fat kid" steering wheel were also accessories.

This car also came equipped with an Alamite grease gun and other tools, which can be seen in the open trunk area. The kids were supposed to get aquainted with working on cars of the day!
