Here's high powered speed combined with the thundering excitement of the "Hot Rod" class. Powered by it's own electric motors [that's right, it takes two piston pumpin' bad boys to make this cat scream], this marvelous automotive miracle [wait - did they say, "miracle"? Miracle?! Miracle.] will give you a thrill as it zooms along at tremendous scale speeds. Realistic in detail, it's great fun to build and even more fun to race up and down courses, over hills and on the thundering straightaway. Imagine [because it will never be reality] the thrill as this speed-merchant outraces all the other kids in the neighborhood. And [did we mention already...] it's great fun to build. Complete with all [i.e., both] parts and instructions. Only $1 plus 25 cent shipping charges. [we'll send you your change]
It's fun - it's exciting. It's high speed. [It's a rip off even by QVC standards.]I've got several other comic ads to show you... I'll save them for next time. But in the meantime, check out Kirk's blog category of mail order madness. Besides, he writes much better than I.
