Seeing the Lincoln That Guntownal showed us reminded me of a few I had put away in my Garage years ago. I have included some pics, The first 4 are from the early 90s and have working suspension. I thought some of you might like to see them.

Here are four more that were in the box from the late 90s.

I have the Atlantic and two of the power trucks loose and I don't recall them having working suspension. I'll have to pull them out and check them again.

I have never had them out of the blister, but....

I Don't know about the Atlantic, But the Lincoln, BMW, Sunburner and Mack Power Truck all have spring loaded suspension. Even through the blisters you can push up on the front or rear wheels and they will spring back just as if they have shocks. They seem to be independent. If you have any from 1990 or so, try it.

Working suspension you say? Wussat?????:rolleyes:;)
As I recall some of these cars had plastic tabs along the axles. If you pushed down on the body of the car it gave the appearance of having a working suspension system. Someone please correct me if I am mistaken...

De rien...

We both seem to have a very dry sense of humor.

I have found that mine is sometimes misunderstood in the real world...:freak::freak::wave:
