Cyborgabelincoln informed me that this strange but cool plastic-bodied but metal-chassis’d Disco-Vette, is a retooling of an earlier pullback car.
Yesterday was my last weekday off for winter break. The kids were in daycare, so my wife took off and we had an adult day out. I happened to find an example of that pullback at our favorite antique mall.
I would’ve bought it, but the pullback motor was broken. The racecar next to it was also a pullback ... and also broken. I didn’t get anything at that place, but don’t worry I got some elsewhere that I’ll share sometime this week.
