(Do you need a longer title?)
Brief and very random post today. But… Big Trak! You know? BIG TRAK! When I was a wee laddy the Big Trak was one of my favorite toys. And I have had an opportunity today for a brief few moments to relive the glory of being a Big Trak driver by stumbling across a link to its Wikipedia entry, which led to the Big Trak Homepage as well as to a fellow who has done an amazing job reverse engineering the Big Trak (click on the picture to go to his website).
If you were a child in the U.S., the U.K., or Europe during the 70s (like I was) perhaps you remember this great toy. If not, maybe the American commercial will spark your memory (available at Retrojunk.com)
I know Paul said that when he became a man he put away childish things (1 Cor. 13:11). But it doesn’t mean I can’t blog about them, right? And it’s OK to wish I still had one, right? I mean–for my kids, you know. Yeah. The kids.
