Oh my.. someone is sending me a "Big Trak"

The Big Trak was one of those ultra-cool toys back in about the early eighties. It was a programmable (via keypad) severely styled truck/tank looking thing that stored so many instructions and then carried them out on demand. I never owned one, but like every other kid at the time I absolutely drooled over them. I loved these things, they almost make the awful disco music and "big hair" of the eighties forgivable.

In the pictures I have found it looks pretty big, it may even be a better platform that the 4wd truck because of the turning radius (center axle differential steering) and just the larger size in general.

Of course it had to be broken :(

(some type of problem with the electronics, the rest of it is supposed to be in good shape. So at least I won't have any guilt pangs about opening it up.)
