When I was young, I used to have a number of "Crash Cars." Now I hear I called them that originally because I thought they were cars that crashed and were then rebuilt smaller.
On the other hand, I remember them as cars crashed against each other. I crashed them at about a 45-degree angle, two at a time, like the playoffs. I saw this today, and I immediately thought of my mother.
Looking back, it had to be a little annoying. The sound, the yells, and the crashing of expensive toys. FYI - these were MUCH bigger than a Matchbox or Hot Wheels toy.
Here are just some of the ones I had, that I remember.
