Ghost Riders?

I think it's safe to say that the Fleetwood Toys Ghost Rider figure with removable Johnny Blaze head is one of the more iconic and well known bits of 70s Superhero merchandise. This is probably thanks to the Heroes World ad that ran in comics, making the toy out to be a lot cooler than it really was.

I was surprised recently to see that Fleetwood was also offering a smaller friction racer version of Zarathos in '76. Like a lot of Rack Toys, I have no idea if these ever got produced but wouldn't be surprised if one surfaced some day...
