The Oral Report

Standing up in front of the class was never so much fun!

The rantings and ravings of a mom of three wonderful girls as she finds new love while working like a dog and shaking her fist at the system. You know. Pretty much like everybody else.

I do remember the commercial and the concept, but while I know we had an SSP car somewhere in there it wasn't this set, and it was most likely my brother's. These pull-strip drive SSP cars didn't come in until the early '70s, I believe, and the combination of my heading for my teens and never giving a tinker's damn about cars would have made it unlikely it was mine.

Revving the standard ones up and using them to wreck castles quickly built from wooden blocks... that much I remember. We weren't looking for anything that had lots of little parts to lose.

Like aAa, I loved the tag line "ya see raht chyere." Makes me wonder if anyone north of the Manson Nixon line ever saw this commercial. Hmmm. Thanks for the video.

Mike -

I knew lots of boys in my neighborhood that had them and actually had a turn at crashing them up myself.

Nate & FH -

Yeah. That is pretty funny. But, I saw it when living in New York state, as did Highlander (he and his brothers actually had these).

Feels like it was yesterday when I watch the commercial. Damn, I'm old!
