Boo.

Beggars night (trick or treat), soaping windows, hanging bicycles from the statue in the town common.  Pea shooters.  All good clean fun.

Cool stuff Mark! As a kid in the late 1960's/early 1970's.. I used to wait for the SEARS CHRISTMAS CATALOG to be delivered in the mail. I don't remember when it would arrive.. but it was probably sometime before the Thanksgiving holiday.. to allow plenty of time to order.. or get to a store to shop in time for Christmas. Sears sold EVERYTHING that you needed. It's fascinating; that such a retail giant is no longer a player..

Me too Fred.  What a step up from baseball cards and clothes pins, huh? A real upgrade to my Schwinn Stingray!

A couple of months ago, my wife and I were hanging out on the front porch watching a neighbor teach his 7 year old son how to ride a bike.  She hollered out he needed to clip some cards on it.  I said no, he really needs a Vroom!  She'd never heard of that so I looked it up on the Net.  Geez!  People are asking $500 and up for them, some with no handlebar throttles too.  Boy, I wish I still had some of that stuff I had when I was a kid.  I could retire right now!

This is the real Mattel Vrroom.  It bolted on to the frame and turned an ordinary bike into a fire breathing, tire scorching hot rod!  

This one is available on the Bay for a paltry $450. Batteries not included.

Perhaps for the most discerning collector for something that looks NOS, but at that cost, one could probably get a Chinese moped conversion kit for a bike and have a real powered bicycle.

In 1971, that was the cost of a brand new Honda CB100 motorcycle. (Photo off the net)

One of the few ground-based toys I ever wanted...I think it cost around 12-14 bucks, and that put it WAY out of the Christmas budget.  But, I was pretty adept at imagining sending it on assignments to vanquish my enemies!
