Remember this?

Did anyone have this Barbie vette? I think I got it around 1978. I saw it in my parent's basement about 6 months or so ago. The other day they were showing a new Barbie car & Tara wanted it. I told her that I had 1 & would have my Dad bring it the next time he visited. Anthony tested the remote to see if it worked. It didn't have enough power to make the car move, so I think we'll be cutting that off. She can still use it with her Barbies. I thought of looking up the new version of the Vette. It probably has a gps in it & On Star or other new fangled things. I also had the Barbie town house. I didn't keep that. But the new one has a hot tub & other exciting things. I'm not sure why I kept a lot of my things since I was never planning to have kids (I'll write a post on that someday), but I'm glad I did.

She's going to have so much fun with that! My friend kept lots of her old Barbie stuff, and her girls played with it all for years.

We too have given homes to rescued vintage Barbie pieces. :) My favorite is "Barbie and the Rockers" :) We also have the Barbie A-Frame Dream house, 4 barbie cars, The Barbie Horse trailer and Jeep, The Barbie McDonalds- complete with trays and drink cups....
Oh my! That's lots of Barbie stuff-

I'm sure that she'll get a kick out of the vette!
