There is no better time capsule into 1970s pop culture than a rack toy catalog especially if it’s one by Fleetwood toys.
’79 is a great example as the company had some fantastic choices, from the TV cop antics of Vega$, Chips and Starsky and Hutch, to the less popular How the West was won. Marvel superheroes both A and B list were present and we had Buck Rogers and Salvage 1 present to please the Sci-Fi Kids.
