My new ride, and I think it might be worth real money someday:

I've got four grandkids under age 5, and my wife brought this beauty home last week:

12 volt, twin motors, reduction gears. I'm approaching it like Dr Frankenstein approached a healthy looking corpse.

In my opinion, these things (power wheels) are the collectors items of the year 2050. I figure I'm working on my kid's retirement account.

yup, by then they will have banned them because a battery leaked in one, or obese 3 year olds got stuck in them, or... or....

It'll be worth a small fortune!

Put a 1" lift on it along with lockers front and rear.....and you will set....
Even if you are on the right track, you will still get run over if you just sit there.

Can't carry many tools with that.

I found a miniature Corvette at a yard sale for $20 about 5 years ago. The grandkids loved it and I got some great pictures of them in it. Being plastic, it only lasted a few years, but it was worth it.

Ya know, if you can really get it running, it might be the only transportation around if we get one of the EMP's they're predicting this year.
