' A car mounted on blocks is called “The Phoenix Link Trainer” in which the student displays a knowledge of hand signals and how the car works '

Quote And here's the real thing, real tires with real air in them, headlights that work, a horn that blows. This car is called The Phoenix Link Trainer patterned after the famous aviation trainer on which so many pilots learn the fundamentals of flying without leaving the ground.

If this film is made with the support of GM, why are there so many Austin J40 pedal cars?

Well what?

Those cars all seem to be American, the Austin J40 isn't.

Well, in Germany in the 70ies the most roller coaster cars and bumper cars had an Audi 60 front - but weren't made by Audi.

:think: I'm unsure, which make the pedal cars were, we used as kids in the 70ies in the Traffic Kindergarten.
They weren't the real Kettcar:

They all had a "Shell" sticker on - but surely this wasn't the make.

As you can see from my linked article, the J40 was certainly an Austin, built in Wales in an Austin owned factory, so why the GM connection.

Also, the last Link Trainer I got near to was a trainer for an aeroplane.
