1981 Takara Catalog and Penny Racers
Also in the 1981 Takara catalog that featured Triple Flips (posted here) was this double-page spread of Penny Racers toys. Awesome! I posted a high-res scan of the two pages at Flickr just in case you want a closer look. I’m surprised we don’t see these in stores here in the US today; just imagine the fun of a blind bag series of modern Penny Racers. After all, Takara is still making the Choro-Q toys in Japan, so shouldn’t someone bring these to US stores?
