Tomy Turnin' Turbo Dashboard

Remember the days without Playstation, without Forza Motorsport 3, without actual driving? As kids, we had only one thing to simulate the amazing feeling of driving a car: the Tomy Turnin' Turbo Dashboard.

Sold by Takara Tomy in 1983, the Turnin' Turbo Dashboard table-top driving simulator provided hours of entertainment for our feeble little childish minds and was limited only by our parent's not-so-generous stock of D cell batteries. Although the driving simulation was the exact same every single time, it's a true testament to how such a simple toy can enthrall a child's mind for hours upon hours upon über-entertaining hours.
