This three-wheeled beast began my love for all things automotive. I have a distinct memory of dragging my G.I. Joe with the kung-fu grip from a string behind my Big Wheel. It kills me because I could probably pay for chopping the Pickle's top if I had just saved it in good condition.
A friend of mine had the Green Machine. The rear-wheel steering was cool. You could get it to spin out pretty easily. I never could get my Big Wheel to do a 360 degree spin like the commercial.
