          Yeah that jump ramp at the back was good fun. I’m trying to remember some of the accessories – table, chair, camping stuff, coffee pot, fuel can – all moulded in red plastic I think. Was there also a small red canoe too, or am I thining of something else?

    I had two Evel Knievel toys. I had the exploding car and the rocket car that was supposed to jump over the canyon. They were incredibly durable, and I loved the red windup wheel. I think my mom bought that for me because she saw how much I liked playing with a similar spiderman toy.

      I always thought the rocket car was such a cool-looking vehicle. The exploding car sounds fun too. You’re right, these things were incredibly durable, and I know the stunt cycle I had was really put through its paces both in the living room and outside in the garden πŸ™‚
