A classic toy car is being inducted into an auto museum in Cleveland - and it outsold every other car in the U.S. in 2008.
The Cozy Coupe, a plastic cherry-red sports car, allows toddlers to sit on a bench-style seat and poke their legs through to the ground. When they start walking, the car begins to go.
On Saturday, it will take its place next to historically significant automobiles at the Crawford Auto-Aviation Museum.
The Cozy Coupe sold 457,000 units in 2008, topping the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord. In the '90s, it outsold both the Accord and Ford Taurus.
It would land in the top-20 best-selling models of all time, if considered, having sold more than 10 million units in its 30-year history.
The museum will house one of the first Cozy Coupes to come off the production line in 1979.
The Cozy Coupe is made by The Little Tikes Co. in Hudson, Ohio.

It is better to remain silent at the risk of being thought a fool, than to talk and remove all doubt of it. --- Maurice Switzer
