Many of us grew up in automotive-centered households, knowing very early in life that we had gearhead blood. But these days, automotive enthusiasts seem to be getting younger and younger, figuratively stepping into car culture sometimes even before they take their first steps.
This comes compliments of the plethora of automotive kiddie creations on the market, including a growing number of sweet hot rod strollers. There’s no more function over form here – these bad boys are all about baby’s first cool set of wheels. Take a look for yourself in the video above.
Yes, this is indeed a classic Cadillac shrunk down to the perfect size for pint-size rodders. Cooler than most people’s actual cars, this Cadi stroller is complete with red neons, a drop top and skull shifter. But that’s not all this glorified baby carriage has going for it. Wait until about half way through the video and you’ll see the stroller also has flame-throwing tailpipes.
If you look real close, you can also see the car lower once the flames start thanks to a built-in air-ride suspension.
Rides like these are popping up all over the place these days, offered by several different companies like Todd Rodz, who built the Cadillac above minus the custom upgrades, that specialize in these Kustom Kulture musts. There are also custom hot rod companies like Kids Kustoms that are taking it to another level by creating completely one-off works of art like the stroller pictured below.
People used to have peddle cars that matched their rides but custom car strollers seem to be where it’s at these days. Man, why didn’t they have these when we were kids?
