  2. HAHAHAHA, I was just thinking 25 years back, my son was 1 year old and I bought him one of these, hoping for the day he would be tearing it up on the sidewalk. Those were good days.

    Yeah, we just park it on that side, keeps it from rolling. You have to turn it to the top side before getting under way.;)

    I was 14 at the time. I don't have any pics from then, but I was terrorizing the countryside in a 1967 Volkswagen that I had made into a baja. I can still remember doing fish-tails on the dirt roads and letting go of the steering wheel...the car would continue to fish-tail due to the weight of the motor in the back. GOOD TIMES!!!!

    Not really sure, somewhere between the mighty 78 Mazda Cosmo and my 79 Camaro. Very forgettable years.

    Can't find the pics right now. I had a 78 T/A , 400-4 speed, black with a red int. Installed an isky cam and a turbo. Had a LOT of fun and got a FEW tickets. I still have the car but the eng is history. Has a hole it the side of the block the size of a small cantalope (sp?).
