    As a kid, I had this toy car that was about twice the size of your usual hot wheels car; it was made of plastic and it popped open like a drag racer, housing a small and slightly articulated action figure in the single seat.

    The car kind of looked like something out of a Mad Max movie and sported a big cannon on top that fired a red missile, and there was a "launcher" included as well that would shoot the car across the floor, though it wasn't as fancy as you'd expect, it pretty much just gave the car a good shove, there was no track or anything.

    Any idea? Pretty much the only component I can recall to any detail is the launcher which was basically just a small grey box with a handle, and the handle was the one that popped out to push the car.

    It reminds me of something from the Nascar Racers show that used to be on foxkids. I think I owned one of the toys that did something similar.

    No way, this is much older than Nascar Racers.

    I think I got that thing somewhere around early-to-mid-90's.
