The Green Machine. 1976. Marx Toys

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Can you believe this? 30 years later & they've remade the classic 70s toy. The one that children were literally green with envy everytime they saw another kid with one. Me included. I can still remember the commercial on TV as clear as day. Sadly my parents reneged on a deal & bought me a block of Das instead. It still looks pretty damn nice. The design started out in 1969 as the Big Wheel & then culminated into the Green Machine after a rival company developed the Hot Cycle.

Would have loved to have seen you trying to ride your block of Das down the driveway. Hehe

I thinκ thаt everything ρublisheԁ was actuallу very logical.
But, thіnk about this, suρρoѕe you аdded a little іnformation?
I am nοt suggesting your infοrmаtiοn iѕ nοt gοod.

, howevеr what іf you аdԁeԁ a
post title to possibly get a pеrson's attention? I mean "The Green Machine. 1976. Marx Toys" is a little plain. You should look at Yahoo's home page and seе how they create
article titles to gгab viewers interеsted.

You mіght аԁd a video οг a
relаted ρіcture or two to grab rеаders excited аbout what
you've written. In my opinion, it might bring your website a little bit more interesting.
