We first read about Colin Rule in the blog at Hemmings Daily, who combined his occupation as a professional Austin Healey restorer in Australia with his passion for antique pedal cars to produce a 1/2-scale replica of an Austin Healey 3000 MkIII. He then equipped it with a 24V electric motor so it didn’t have to rely on pedal power any longer.
He has now created several half-size Healey clones, as well as a pair of lookalike gas go-karts capable of 100+mph! But its the scale cars that blow our minds — check out the engine detail! Even more impressive when you consider that 98% of the parts are hand-made!
