The Mach 5 race car from the movie "Speed Racer". The Volo Auto Museum. Volo Illinois. June 2013., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photograph during a recent June 2013 visit to the Volo Auto Museum, located in the town of Volo Illinois.
One of my favorite memories from when I was growing up in Chicago, was watching the "Speed Racer" cartoons when I would come home from school circa 1972. I seem to recall that they were aired in the late weekday afternoons, on Channel 32 W.F.L.D TV in Chicago. It was one of my favorites back then.
Seen here is a replica of the famous "Mach 5 "race car, used in the movie "Speed Racer" which was out in the theatres about five years ago.
Remember the cartoon theme song?
"Go speed ra-cer . Go speed ra-cer.
Go speed ra-cer Go-oooo."
