"This was just too awesome to go without posting. All kids remember popping open one of those boxes, taking out all of those blister kits and begin piecing together a car.

Add it all to another lonely Friday night and this is pretty much my childhood. Travis Hudson"

Do they still sell that stuff, or can you only get the crap that doesn’t work?
No idea...I haven’t put one of those together in eons.
Me either, i have all daughters.
I have sons (and a daughter on the way,) but I never was any good at putting them together anyway.
The car models, that is...
Congrats on the impending arrival!
I never got into the car models, they seemed too easy and boring. I used to do balsa and doped tissue paper planes with the multiple rubber cords. Did an RC once, but it was more cash than I wanted to spend, and i destroyed it on it’s first flight.
That reminds me of the model rockets my brother and I used to build...
