My 21 month old boy kept screaming "Cars, cars..." and pointing at the garage so we went in and I put him in my Ferrari. He started crying, jumped out yelling "My car, my car", and ran over to the Alfa.
My two year old daughter calls my 85 Graduate "fun car" and gets really mad when we don't take it to drop her off at day care. Here is an old picture of her in it... It is great to have her right there when you need to give the child a bottle while driving!
Great post. My father had a 1957 spider veloce. I loved riding in that car. Growing up in Northern California, he drove it year round. At 7 or so, I would wait at the corner sometimes an hour for my dad to return home from work. Just to ride in the car for a minute or two. I'll never forget the music that little 1300 made while being brought to a boil. My now 8 year old son has the same love.
