    I've been visiting my parents for the holidays. The Technics 8860 was my biggest and only significant kit as a child. I spent time gathering the pieces from various drawers and corners of closets. I was able to put it together minus 1 piece of the wrong color and without any of the rubber bands (the one I found disintegrated when I touched it).

    The car has a working steering, two gears, and chairs that decline and move back and forth. Here's the final build:

    My first "Technical" (before it was re-branded "Technic", I think) Lego set was the original "Car Chassis (853)".

    And that's currently sitting in a box in the garage along with this:

    Wow, what's amazing is that a these Technic parts have remained the same. The coil-over shocks on the Porsche 911 don't look any different.

    Disney should have used that spaceship in Rogue One.

    One can only imagine ...

    ...

    Tickles me that the stickers on set 497 say "928" which was the subsequent catalog # for the 1979 version of the set (which, as far as I can tell, only differs in the set-number).

    Now to catalog all my "original" Lego trains (with the blue/white track/sleepers and 3x C-Cell battery boxes) ...
