Looked forward to that every Saturday. Me and my Dad built the "Black Spyder". Looked like a skinny Vette and would just suck the track.I miss those. I had two; one was a Shelby Cobra, and the other was the weirdest thing ever, I made from scratch, that barely looked like a car, but could it ever go without jumping the track.
The hobby shop in town had a great track set up us to run them on. The cars didn't come in sets with track, transformers, etc. They were kits we had to assembly and paint with all sorts of parts for modifications available.It is "buried" in the basement but as soon as I can "find" it I will post pics. I can't remember if all the "cars" are in the set but will let you know what I find. Stay tuned.
And here are some of the trivia questions I mentioned.Adam12 and Dragnet.
