In 1988, I received a Lego 6395 Victory Lap Raceway! Well, I think that’s when I got it, I was like 9 so I don’t remember, but that’s when it came out. Fast forward a few (ok a lot) of years, and I put it back together!
This is a pretty sweet Lego set that comes with four race cars, a truck, a doctor with a stretcher, and like 13 people! It’s completely Shell branded and lots of details.
The instructions are fun too as they’re not as detailed as they are now. Sometimes you just get pictures of the next step all to put together but no indication of what blocks they used or where they go. Not hard, just different.
By now you’re probably wondering where I got such a sweet retro Lego set. Well, my mom saves everything. She brings up Legos and instruction booklets when she finds them. Sometimes I get a lot of pieces, sometimes it’s just one. Over the years, I’ve gotta quite a few and had 98% of the pieces for the Lego Raceway.
I have a lot more Lego sets that are currently somewhere in my parent’s house. You never know what she’ll bring me next. Could be parts to my Airport Shuttle (6399) from 1991 or the manual to my Lego Giant Truck (5571) from 1996, or just some random pieces. It’s always a surprise!
