1978 Kenner SSP/ Smash Up Derby Catalog

SSP stood for "Super Sonic Power" and it was one of Kenner's flagship brands in the 1970s, mostly because of the popularity of "Smash Up Derby" a toy that combined boys love of cars with their desire to wreck stuff (Genius).

1978 saw a lot of goodness with the introduction of Monsters, Vans and Star Wars to the line, such a cool brew of fun.

I LOVED SST stuff! Never had much of it, but always wanted every one of them.

I still have my Darth Vader van (amazingly, it survived Katrina.) Let me know if you need pics.

(who misses his other SST rides)

I had the Smash-Up Derby and it was probably the coolest toy I ever owned, even though I might have been a year or two too young to appreciate the sheer awesomeness of such a thing. I remember gazing at the box for hours too, looking at the other shiny SST cars, wishing they were all mine.
