    Had to be my toy car. It was boss. Used to go cruising round in my garden, down the road. :cool:

    Red doors, yellow roof. No windows you could just lean out. It's a shame no major car companies have picked up on this classic design. I for one would certainly be buying one.

    Timmy, he was like a rag doll with big long legs but he was a dog. I literally wouldn't go anywhere without him, he had to come to school and sit on my desk. The other brats used to push him off :(

    *I remember you! I used to wait for you to pass by everyday. I'd have myself all dolled up and shout out 'Hey sailor, room in that car for two?'

    You used to slowly reverse back up the street, crying :(

    I've moved onto VW Passats now, but that little yellow and red car accompanied by it's hollow rumble always sets my heart racing!

    My pet chicken. I had a little cushion for it to sit on and everything. Then my brother thought it was a football and kicked it.

    I had a walkie talkie that was like headphones with the mic at the side of your mouth, I felt like Madonna.

    I also loved my Spud gun and dressing up as April from The Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles.

    A piece of charred firewood that I carved into the shape of an X-Box when languishing in the attic after being beating with the poker by my dour, tyranical parents.

    One day I wept over it and as my tears touched it, it turned into a real X-Box and my parents contracted cancer.

    My Bosco tricycle....

    Looked it up. Yes it was! :D

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00000IRTS/ref=s9_simh_gw_p21_d1_g21_i2?pf_rd_m=A3P5ROKL5A1OLE&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_r=1H9RB9D17KM4QAJRAXNG&pf_rd_t=101&pf_rd_p=467128533&pf_rd_i=468294

    The new version cars have eyes. I had to rely on my own eyes back in the day :cool:

    I wish you didn't have to bring that up on an internet forum. Just because my Dad was in the navy and him and his best mate were killed when a blimp crashed into the ship, you felt the need to mock me with sailor jibes everytime I cruised past. :(

    Bah, can't decide which is my favourite!

    My Crash Test Dummies Car which took some abuse. Had a tiny guy inside it who would bury his face into the airbag that deployed.

    Still have it somewhere in the family house, airbag has rotted away though :D

    Can't forget the aul Snes & Nes consoles. Still sitting in the same drawer they've been in for over 20 years, both still working fine.

    Ah, and my old pedal go-kart. The right back wheel completely worn down after all of the drifting I used to do in it down steep hills :pac:
