Burnin’ Key Cars: cars with the key to speed–FAST!

Man, you see that awesome stunt at the end?! I wonder how many times they had to do that to get on video? You know they say “fast” 6 times in 30 seconds?

My brother and I loved these things. Released in the early 80’s these were simple matchbook cars with a spring in them. It was really hard to put them on the key, but once you did, these things did really fly across the floor. They also flew through the air, which lead to plenty of painful bruises!

Did you have these things when you were a kid?
