The American Juvenile Electric was a car made by the American Metal Wheel & Auto Co of Toledo, Ohio, in 1907. Its wheelbase was a mere 3 feet 5 inches (1.04 m), but was complete with ‘lights, bells, etc.’ and had tiller steering. Its top speed was 10 mph (16 km/h). It was very expensive; selling for $800. People[who?] still preferred to use mules instead of this car.
