Back when they were up-front about parts packs...

I love the big white spot on the box art.

Adds to the overall appeal.

When Lego was about building and not about collecting licensed minifigs or absurd set...

I loved this set. It helped me understand turning mechanisms, at least with Lego.

See this is really just the stereotypical boy version of a clikits pack.

“We’ll give the girls flowers, and the boys car parts, that’ll work!”

My frustration level with the technic approach to steering back then was 11.

Try creating a front wheel design with:
- fully-independent-suspension
- steering
- FWD / 4WD support
when those turntables are all you have to work with for steering.

When 8858 harvester came out, it at least had a more compact steering design, though it supported neither power nor independent suspension.
