Lionel knew exactly what I wanted in a Remote Controlled Toy Car

While a lot of RC cars seems to emphasize rough off-road racing, and I got to admit that is a lot of fun, that is not at all what I was looking for in my RC cars as a kid. No, instead growing up watching urban chase scenes a police dramas like Adam-12, I wanted raw street racing speed and I wanted to have chases between cops and robbers. So this ad pretty much summed up EXACTLY what I was looking for in a toy car.

Sadly I never received as RC car like this as a kid, but as they say, it is never to late to live your dreams.
