Crash Cars

This Memory is looking a little short on nostalgia! Have you got anything you could add?

I had two Crash Cars and I loved them. One was yellow and the other I think was red. You smashed them into each other or the wall and they broke into bits but you just clipped them back together and did it all over again!

    It was called Smash-up Derby and was made by an American firm called Kenner SSP. Don't know who marketed it in the UK though. I had the VW Beetle and the pick up. There's a page with some pictures at http://www.vintagetoyroom.com/review/feb2003Review.shtml and an old TV advert on You Tube if you search for 'Smash up derby Kenner'.

    I Loved um. The Yellow one was a pickup & the Red one was a Bettle. They had a big wheel in the middle of the car with a black plastic strap that had teath on, which you would push down onto a cog and pull as fast as you could to get the 'big wheel' spinning as fast as possable and then let go of the cars on to the floor & hope the cars would CRASH into each other. Coz if they didn't, they would bash into the skirtingboard & chip the paint.( which meant you got a wallop from Mum or Dad) The doors, Roof and Bonnets would fly off. Clip um back on & crash again! Coolest toy going.
