AMELIA ISLAND, Fla. -- The Amelia Island Concours d'Elegance is in full swing and it's not just about exotic, classic cars. There are some smaller ones that are making a big difference.

They're tiny, child-sized pedal cars and one group is auctioning them off solely to help others.

"This one in particular is going to be auctioned off for the Spina Bifida Foundation," said RM Auctions car expert Ian Kelleher.

Don't be fooled by their size: The pedal cars are designed with nearly the same detail as their big brothers.

"The gauges, the wood dash, there's really some detail to this."

Kelleher said the pedal cars were individually designed and will bring in tens of thousands of dollars to the Concours' charities.

"There's really nothing better than something cute to help raise money," Kelleher said.

And a little nostalgia never hurts either.

"I had one of those Austin J40's when I was five!" said visitor Tim McGrain.

"[It was] my fifth birthday! I still have a photograph of it. My father put a personalized license plate on it, so it said 'Tim 5.'"

Some of the funds raised for the pedal cars will go to the Spina Bifida Foundation, while others will help underprivileged children in Los Angeles to experience the arts.
