Does anyone remember the model toy car line of the 60's called...
"THE CRASHMOBILE"
It was a toy car that you snapped together and
then winded up or pushed it into a wall and all the parts
would go flying in a hundred different directions.
Great fun I must say...
Now all the Massholes can do that with their Buicks!

My generation never had toys like this, so we had to break our toys in order to put them back together. :pp

Anyone remember the Kenner SSP(?) Demolition derby sets? The cars had a rubber wheel in the center. You pulled a plastic cord and sent them flying into one another. One car was a 57 Ford, the other was a 57 nomad. When they hit something, the doors, hood and trunk would fly off. My mother hated that toy because it would make black marks on the floor!

She really hated the Evel Kneivel stunt cycle. Would make even better marks on the floor!! You cranked the cycle up to warp speed on the stand and then let it rip!! Man, those toys were fun!!!

I had some of those crash test dummies (the first time they came out). The car and the plane that you would smash into things and parts would go flying everywhere as well as the head/arms/legs of the little guys inside.

Remember the TV commercial for those?

"Smash, bang, crack 'em up.....put 'em back again!"

I was kicking around on E-Bay and saw the Evil Knievel stuff. My brother and I had the van too. We also had the Steve Austin capsule and the Jaws game. Talk about memories.

What hurts is all the first run Star Wars toys I had and eventually destroyed. :Dou:
