Lee (either one):

I had the Tyco Night Glow "Empire 1000" slot car set. It had glow in the dark components like guard rails and lane stripes....and the cars had working headlights for racing in the dark.

I got it for Christmas from my grandparents when I was 6. I think it cost something like $75 dollars in the JC Penney catalog. That would probably be nearly $250 in today's money...wow!

There was a strange electric/ozone smell that the controllers gave off after playing with it for a long time.

Good times.
