Re: Old Dept. Store Catalog Scans

One of the other of the Murray choppers was the Fire Kat. I got one new for cristmas of 1979. Then found one years later at costomers home I was building a deck for. I gave it to one of my sons friends because he liked it. Lots of memories on those bikes. smile

Oddly enough, unless my mother has thrown it away, we still have a Millenium Falcon in her attic.  In the box too I believe.


Yeah I want Cheesy Poofs!

I like how Darth and Obi are getting their 'light sabre' on in the picture. Random Storm Trooper just watching them too. lol.


Yes dear that IS the same bike. No, it's not a new one.

Re: Old Dept. Store Catalog Scans

cool How'd I miss this.  I remember all these pics!
The wishbooks were like the first Christmas gift of the season.   For some odd reason I had saved these into my teen years.  My mom eventually threw them out cause they were torn and ratty. Early days of hoarding I guess
