    I really miss those cataloques from Eatons, Woodwards, The Bay, and Sears. What to wish for was always a struggle. Now all we get are MOUNTAINS of crappy flyers that just don't hold the same promise.:(

    From a quick google itc made other motorized kits but not all seemed to come with the remote.
    also lindenberg did too.
    makes me wonder if you could attach one remote to them all.
    would sure make a cool thing to collect but not for me, monies needed elsewhere.

    I have the large one, (9" length-(no pun intended), but it doesnt wind up and it's a "Crashmobile". Identical to the "jr" model but larger.

    Neat thing about the motorized Lindberg kits was that the motor was a kit as well - I built a few of them and they ran pretty good, although the magnets give up the ghost after 30 years or so...

    My brother and I got a Strombecker slot car track one Christmas, think it was 1966. We played w/that for years. Also I had the Big Brusier tow truck, was great fun winching the El Camino up our front stairs.
