Green Machine Commercial (1978)

By a happy twist of fate I got a Green Machine as a kid instead of a Big Wheel. While initially confused and maybe a little disappointed, I soon realized just how lucky I was.

    I really enjoyed this post because I was an initially reluctant then eventually enthusiastic Green Machine rider too. I liked how the Big Wheels easily fit on the sidewalks in our neighborhood. But, eventually I grew to love the twin joystick steering of the Green Machine. I wonder if I can get my car’s steering wheel replaced with those?

  2. I had one of these. It was even better than in the commercial.

    Not only that, I somehow remember the song in this commercial note-for-note. Thanks for posting!
