This electronic toy was a black corvette. When the car was turned on, it would play the 'CHARGE!' tune. Under the hood there was a sensor-touch keypad that contained: numbers 0-9 (the number of seconds or times to repeat a function. It could be programmed as long as you wanted...). It had arrows to program the car's direction (Left, Right, Forward, Reverse, Reverse Left, Reverse Right), lights, siren, horn, stop and go.
The lights, siren, horn, stop and go functions could be programmed as well. Example: 'Stop', 'Lights' (5), 'reverse' (1), 'reverse left' (9), 'Siren' (10), 'GO'. On 'Go' the car will: screech the tires (sound), flash the headlights for 5 seconds, reverse for 1 second, continue into a left reverse for 9 seconds, wail the siren for 10 seconds, then stop.
The car was quite the technologically advanced toy I had ever seen as a kid. You could program anything into this car and it would perform it to perfection. It could drive in figure 8's, circles, squares, etc. All it required were (1) 9 volt, and (2) D cell batteries.
