I have a 3 year old little boy and he is just getting into Power Wheels. He's had a lil Wrangler, but it will not run on grass with his weight...I guess that is the issue. We bought him a Peg Polaris Sportsman 800 24 volt second hand for Christmas. It is like new and I had to give $150 for it, but I thought that was fair. It's staying at a friend's house until Christmas morning.

I put an ad on Craigslist looking for used Power Wheels and brought home my first freebie yesterday. It is a Silverado 12 volt in pretty good condition, but it did not run. Bought a new battery for $40 today and it runs perfectly. The screw keeping it in low gear had never been removed. We are now looking for a Corvette, a full size Jeep, Grave Digger, and some type of dune buggy/go cart type vehicle. I've found this site to be an amazing resource so far. Cheers!

Hey man,
Where in bama are you at? I live in the Jasper area yet work in Birmingham. Thats pretty cool that you got a powerwheel for free off CL. I have been looking for one for some time now and cant find one. Of course I am being picky as I want to get him a mustang and then mod it to be 24v or maybe just 18v. well im glad to see another alabamian in these forums and maybe someday we can meet up and drag the powerwheels. lol

I'm in Dothan down in Southeast Alabama. We are in the Georgia/Florida corner of the state.

I think Fisher Price needs to make a 70's model Corvette. I would be all over that! I'm hoping to find a full size Wrangler next.
