Crashmobile

When I was a little boy, my mom would buy me little toy plastic cars that would crash upon impact. They were called "Crashmoibile".

They were either light green with red roof and wheels or vice-versa. I would take them apart and switch them around to make all green or all red ones or other combinations. I must have gone through at least 2 dozen of these.

I've been looking for one on eBay for awhile with no success. They either had just parts or if complete, were too high priced to me.

Finally, I bid on one and won it. It was still in its original package with its 29 cent price!!

Here it is:


Ok, its really a Crashmobile Jr. the original Crashmobiles came out in the 1950's and were larger.

Now I'm looking for one in the reverse colors, not in its package so I can play with it!!
