My brothers and I opening gifts. I'm the one on the left in the stripped pants. There's a "SORRY" game near me and the yellow box by my knee contains a COX BAJA BUG which was a motorized, gas powered toy that turned out to be a lot of fun. There was no RC for this car, you just chased it down and turned it back the way it came. You could lock the front tires to various degrees of turn to keep it in a smaller area. Don't know what my older brother is checking out but one of my younger brothers has a set of CLICK-CLACKS in hand and at least a couple laying next to him. I remember those things being a rather formidable weapon when swung around and flung by a younger sibling. The youngest brother is sitting by a TOSS ACROSS game which is still available in a reworked version. View full size.
