I had a light blue Trans Am. I remember when those cars were all the rage.( The real light blue TA's)

These were the rage when I was in third grade circa 1983. I had the "Magnum PI" car which wasn't the ferarri but a gold colored sports car that resembled a 28OZ. I figured out that if you stuck a paperclip in the back you could get hold of the spring and stretch it out. Then your car would really fly. I had a big edge racing the other kids until they say what I was doing.....Ah.. those were fun times.

I actually found some of these - NEW - at a Walgreens in 2002. Oddly enough, they also had Stompers (if you remember those -- little monster trucks that took one battery and had headlights that really worked). So at least they've been made within the last decade. I was ecstatic! Two of my favorite car toys as a kid in one accidental find!!!

Me and my co-worker were just talkin' about the burnin' key cars, so fast and so smooth (the commercial still plays in my head)

Its so weird setting here and looking at toys I haven't thought about in years. They were such a part of my life back then, before becoming lost in the pages of time. Key cars were a main-stay.
