Yeah, I loved these growing up in California. They came out just as monster trucks were taking off, around 84. I also had a toy dune buggy that was yellow and black. When it got to rough terrain, the tires got bigger, and it could climb over it. Cant remember what that thing was called for the life of me.

Dustin- I had that same thing. The black tires didn't have claws, they "expanded" as the terrain got tough and there was a shifter of sorts on the back. I have no idea what it was called though :(

Flex. It was called flex and I loved it. Took lots of D cells so for me it was expensive to run but it could drive over anything.

I bought my little boy one of these. One morning I'm getting ready for work and I hear him singing the theme song......"Nuthin can stop....The Animal". Next thing I know, this thing is crawling up my shoe and rips my panty hose to shreds. Funny!

I loved this toy. Flex was way cooler though.

I had the flex, did not have the animal, but I also had one that came out after both. It was long had about 10 wheels, it was sort of like a train, but it was the same premise, can go over anything. littleb0yblue@hotmail.com

I had Flex and it was great, for about 5 mins! Couldn't climb over everything but was a great idea and I loved it for a while.
