    Anyone recall the Atari VCS/2600 game Indy 500? The racing game based on the arcade hits Gran Trak 10 & Crash N' Score?

    I've still got it upstairs on my classic shelf, it was good fun, ice tracks, tag etc.
    Came with driving controllers and packaged in a fatter version of the game cart box (which got crushed and thrown out)
    cost £35 from WHSmith IIRC , a lot of money in those days, we used all our xmas book vouchers to buy it :)

    It's a game I had heard about but never owned/played until I bought a NOS copy for 20 pounds recently, still in shrink wrap. It's actually better than the arcade version because it's in colour, packs more than one game and doesn't come in a cabinet that weighs 400 lbs! :D I am playing it on my Atari 2600jr, which is about the size of a VHS cassette.
    Have a look at the description of Gran Trak 10 used to entice arcade owners to buy the machine. :)

    the 2600jr is not the size of a vhs tape.. it's longer, wider, and thicker.

    Well, it isn't much larger than a VHS cassette. It is a tiny console and very light, much smaller than any current platform console. The 2600jr looks like a toy, it could probably fit on a large key ring. :D
