6a00d8354ec1f869e200e54f2eb4ed8833-800wiYeah, we’re going to wallow in nostalgia again this week and look at videos of old toys from the 1960s. This time our subject is Motorific, a toy car made by Ideal. This was a cool, battery-operated car that came with small, interchangeable motors. In fact, the same motors were used in Boaterific, and with slight modifications, The Zeroids line of toy robots. You could do all sorts of modifications to these toy cars, which cashed in on the car craze of the time. The most sought-after set was the Torture Track, complete with all sorts of tricks and ways you could do stunts and crash your cars.

So take a look at a mix of old commercials and new video of vintage toys in action. And keep checking PopCult for the Top Secret surprise this week.
