THIS IS A LIGHTLY USED (BUT NEVER ABUSED) NOMURA, FULLY TIN, BATTERY OPERATED "HIGHWAY DRIVE", ALSO KNOWN AS "THE DRIVING GAME"! THE COLOR, CONDITION AND SHAPE OF THIS " HIGHWAY DRIVE " IS CLOSE TO SHOWCASE SHAPE/CONDITION AS IT HAS BEEN MORE THAN WELL CARED FOR IN MY HEATED BASEMENT FOR MANY A DECADES NOW. THE BASE IS MADE ENTIRELY FROM TIN AND ALL OF THE GRAPHICS ARE DONE VIA TIN LITHOGRAPHY, MEANING THESE GRAPHICS ARE HERE TO STAY! YOU HAVE NOT EVEN THE SMALLEST INDICATION OF ANY RUST, CORROSION OR AGING ANYWHERE ON THE BASE....

YOU DO HAVE A FEW VERY SHALLOW (SUPERFICIAL) SCRATCHES... ALL OF WHICH ARE ATTRIBUTED FROM STORAGE ALL LOCATED ON THE TOP OF THIS ITEM. WHAT MAKES THIS MODEL/ITEM SO SPECIAL IS THAT NOT ONLY IS IT IN VERY GOOD TO EXCELLENT COSMETIC CONDITION, WITH NO TWEAKS, CRACKS, CREASES, DIMPLES OR CORROSION, IT HAS THE ORIGINAL PLASTIC VEHICLE STILL FACTORY BAGGED (UNTIL TODAY {7-13-20} WHEN THIS WAS FULLY TESTED AND OPERATED FLAWLESSLY), IT'S ORIGINAL INSTRUCTIONS AND IT'S ORIGINAL FACTORY BOX WITH BASE ARE ALL STILL IN SHOWCASE CONDITION! AS YOU CAN SEE THIS HAS BEEN WELL STORED OVER THE DECADES. AS FAR AS THE BASE GOES, ONCE AGAIN, YOU WILL BE HARD PRESSED TO LOCATE A BETTER EXAMPLE OF THIS...

THIS DRIVING GAME IS FULLY TESTED AND IT ALL WORKS PERFECTLY TO INCLUDE THE COOL TRIP ODOMETER LOCATED TO THE LEFT OF THE STEERING WHEEL! IF YOU DO JUST SO HAPPEN TO LOCATE ANOTHER ONE OF THESE COOL HIGHWAY DRIVE ITEMS, CHANCES ARE BETTER THEN GOOD THAT SOMETHING WILL BE WRONG WITH IT! TO USE THIS "BATTERY OPERATED HIGHWAY DRIVE " YOU HAVE TO DO THE FOLLOWING: OPEN IT UP AND REMOVE IT FROM IT'S ORIGINAL PACKAGING.

MAKE SURE THE POWER SWITCH IS FIRST SWITCHED TO OFF'. OPEN THE BATTERY COMPARTMENT LOCATED AT THE OPPOSITE END OF THE STEERING WHEEL AND PLACE TWO (2) SIZE "D" BATTERIES (NOT INCLUDED) AS SO INDICATED.

LOCK THIS BATTERY COMPARTMENT BY TURING THE ATTACHED TAB. PLACE THIS DOWN ON ANY SEMI-LEVEL FLAT SURFACE. NOW UNWRAP THE TIN VEHICLE AND PLACE HIM AT THE STARTING LINE. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT AS THIS DOES NOT WORK UNLESS THE VEHICLE IS IN PLACE. THIS USES A MAGNET TO LIFT UP THE CONTACT LOCATED UNDERNEATH THE TRACK WHICH IN TURN POWERS THE REVOLVING TRACK.

THIS IS DONE SO WHEN THE DRIVER VEERS OFF THE ROAD, THE TRACK WILL AUTOMATICALLY STOP WHICH WILL PREVENT ANY DAMAGE FROM OCCURRING. NOW WITH THE TIN VEHICLE IN PLACE, YOU SWITCH IT "ON" AND GUIDE THE VEHICLE THROUGH THE BUSY ROADWAYS AVOIDING THOSE RED PYLONS AND STAYING AWAY FROM THE OTHER VEHICLES VIA THE ATTACHED STEERING WHEEL. THE VINYL COURSE REVOLVES AROUND AND THE ATTACHED SMALL PYLONS ARE ATTACHED TO THE VINYL TRACK. THIS PARTICULAR EXAMPLE WORKS PERFECT AND IS ONE OF THE FASTEST MOVING TRACKS I HAVE SEEN. THE VINYL COURSE IS SELF TIGHTENING SO THIS IS WHY THIS MODEL HAS SURVIVED SO WELL OVER THE DECADES.

TRADITIONALLY, VINYL OF THIS ERA STRETCHES OUT AND OVER TIME BECOMES USELESS. FORTUNATELY, YOU DO NOT HAVE THIS ISSUE WITH THIS HIGHWAY DRIVE. SO WHILE YOU'RE ENJOYING DRIVE AND, IF, BY CHANCE YOU DO GET DISTRACTED OR LOSE YOUR WAY, THE REVOLVING ROADWAY WILL STOP AND ALLOW YOU TO START ONCE AGAIN! PRIOR TO THIS, YOU MIGHT WANT TO SWITCH THIS "OFF" AGAIN AS ONCE YOU PLACE THE VEHICLE DOWN, THE ROADWAY INSTANTLY BEGINS TO REVOLVE AGAIN.

THE ACCOMPANYING ORIGINAL BOX IS IN GOOD OVERALL CONDITION/SHAPE. NO TAPE OR GLUE HAS EVER BEEN ADDED. THIS IS A GREAT INTERACTIVE GAME/MODEL THAT WILL KEEP YOU AND YOURS ENTERTAINED FOR A LONG TIME AND WAS, AT ONE TIME, CONSIDERED A LEARNING TOOL! THIS VINTAGE " HIGHWAY DRIVE " WORKS PERFECTLY AND NEEDS ONLY A NEW HOME WITH CARING FOLKS! THIS WOULD BE A GREAT ADDITION TO ANYONE'S PRIVATE COLLECTION AND WOULD BE A GREAT GIFT FOR ANYONE WHO LOVES TO DRIVE OR IS DYING TO LEARN TO DRIVE! IT'S ALSO A GREAT COMPETITIVE GAME AS YOU CAN TIME YOURSELF AND ANOTHER SEE WHO CRASHES FIRST! WHAT A GREAT GIFT IDEA FOR THE DRIVER IN YOUR LIFE (OR WANT TO BE DRIVER)! I DO HAVE OPTIONS AND I CHOOSE TO OFFER ONLY THE VERY FINEST THAT I HAVE AVAILABLE. I TEST EVERYTHING PRIOR TO LISTING THEM AND ONCE AGAIN PRIOR TO SENDING THEM OFF. I DO THIS SO WE WILL BOTH BE VERY HAPPY WITH THE END RESULT, IT'S THE ONLY WAY I DO THINGS! ONCE AGAIN, PLEASE TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT THESE PICTURES AS THEY DO BECOME AN IMPORTANT PART OF MY DESCRIPTION.
