The Tomy Racing Turbo

If you read this blog often and you should, you heard me talk about my friend, Jimmy that is/was rich. He had all the toys and was really cool about it in that he was a good friend and would allow me to play with all of them and never was a jerk about it.

There were a ton of toys he had that I never did so I will tell you about the video game related ones in a series of posts starting with the Tomy Racing Turbo. Now in the days of Hi-Def video game racers a gamer like this may seem crappy, but back in the 80’s this was the shit.

The Tomy Racing Turbo

Not only did it have the look at feel of a cool sports car, but the sounds and cool lights to boot and to us kids at the time, it felt like a true driving sim. This thing took four D batteries; does anything even take D batteries anymore?
