Scott | 4 comments I read this in the 1980's. A book about a small boy whose Grandfather modifies his pedal car with a reverse gear.

I think it's set in the early 1900's. The Grandfather has an affair with one of the servants.

I think the story is about him growing up and taking over the family business building automobiles.

Thank you for any help you can provide.

Respectfully, SWN

Scott, that's a good start. You must copy the genre (e.g., adult historical fiction, family saga?) and plot details from your message #1 to the topic header/title, so someone could recognize your book from that description alone. Many members only read the headers. -- What's the location?

We have thousands of book requests. We close threads with vague headers.

Click the small "edit" link after the topic header. This only works on the full Desktop website - not the Mobile website or app. (On the Mobile website, there's a "Desktop version" link at the bottom of the page.)
