Before Spider Man, before the famous Millennium Falcon and X-Wing star fighter, before Star Trek and the USS Enterprise (well almost), there was the powerful Mach 5!
I love Speed Racer! I am a Speed Racer geek! There I said it. Now you know, and on May 9, 2008, I know where I will be -- watching the film version of the T.V. show, Speed Racer: Demon on Wheels!
The brothers Wachowski, who produced V for Vendetta and the Matrix trilogy, are returning to the big screen to bring back Speed and the family (Pops, Spritle, Chim Chim and Trixie). If Racer X and his car Morning Star are in the movie, I.. will… die.
Why should Boomers have all the fun? Gen X had its cultural icons, too!
Go Speed Racer, Go!
Update: The picture of the Mach 5 is not a toy model, it the real deal!!!
