    I remember them! Never had one but do remember a mate at school having one. For some reason (colour/design/button layout) it put me in mind of those Raliegh bikes that were around at the same time. They had a similar looking computer button console on the top-bar of the frame.

    I have the trailer at home as well allthough one side set of wheels has come off I've emailed them to see if they can get me spare plastics as the tab has also broken off the battery cover on my bigtrak.

    wow, now that is a blast from the past!

    My dad (who enjoyed playing with it as much as I did) bought the tipping trailer you could have for it too.

    My BigTrak had a dodgy front axle that I had to glue. I even wrote to MB back in the day asking could I buy a replacement axle, sadly Big Trak was out of producton so it was a no

    Excellent find Jawloms, mine is still at my folks place, might just have to get it out and give it a go.

    Awsome find. Wonder if it has the features of the old one? Loosing the black rubber band from the wheels and wheel lugs that broke.

    As long as they fix the chocolate axles. Sigh. I lost count of how many I went through.

    I spent HOURS doing programs on it. Ironically, some of the "new" toys I'm seeing around aimed at little people are rereleases of my own childhood toys, often the same design and colour...I'd be lying if I said I wasn't tempted to go mad and buy some to relive my youth with daughter...

    I lost my original BigTrak, my VIC20, all the starwars stuff etc in a housefire. What I wouldn't give to relive it all again...hehehehe...the cost of the 1970's eBay ones is scary!

    All I can say is...hahaha!! Same chip, different use. I used to have the Rover talking dash on my Maestro..it was ace! In fact, I still have the entire dash in a filing cabinet. Wonder if I could rig up the synth and triggers to the Astra...
