Old 1970's "wacky" car trading cards.

Anybody remember these? I found a stack of them at my parents house not too longs ago.

I can't remember if they came in a pack with gum or if they were in Wonder Bread (anybody remember when the bread companies used to stick cards in a loaf?)

Anyhow here is one of a "Pincho."

I will post some more from time to time.

Check out the back with the trivia and such...pretty cool huh?

Yeah, pretty cool! "Facts" is actually spelled "FAX" right there, huh? It's a nice promotional strategy, though. Some people may not be aware of those ideas. Those who can't remember owning cards like that can actually have a feeling that they already have, 'cause it's a nice ad and they probably wish they kept those back then. :)

I have one of these! I can't remember now if they came in bread or what but I collected the better known Wacky Packages as well. I do have a single stack of these car cards and Pincho was one of my favorites. Others I recall off the top of my head were Stinkin' Continental (the car had a striped hood and skunk tail), Coldsmobile in which the car's passneger area looked like an igloo, ToyBoata, Boltswagon, and so on!
