The Little Tikes Company's Cozy Coupe has outsold every make of car in the U.S. in 2008 according to foxnews.com. The car sold 457,000 units in 2008 to beat out the Honda Accord and Toyota Camry. See what happens when government stays out of the car business?
The little red and yellow cars were first produced in 1979 and are manufactured in Hudson, Ohio. They have become a classic toy for toddlers (My own kids had one.) over the past 30 years and will probably continue to be. Kids love the bright colors and the accomplishment of making it go a la Fred Flinstone. The Cozy Coupe will be enshrined at the Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum in Cleveland on Saturday.
I predict the Cozy Coupe will beat out the new Government Motors cars in sales also. They'll be bigger than the GM cars, and you can't find a car with less emissions.
