OMG I totally remember the candy cigs!
Believe it or not, they still sell these now (had the same one when I was a kid).I remember the day I got one of these from my great grandparents from California when they visited us when I was 5. Mine was brown and is still at my dad’s house

Had one of these too at about the same time and it hauled a lot of dirt around the farm. Wore out a lot of knees in my jeans too.

Both were all steel except the wheels and windows.
My dorm in college had t-shirts made declaring us the champions of co-ed naked twister. It had the Twister dots across the back and looked pretty cool. I haven't noticed it in my closet lately though. I wonder how long it's been since my wife got rid of it...There's gotta be a Rule 34 of that somewhere lol.
Mine was actually purple with sparkly metal-flake stuff in the seat vinyl. It came with purple and white streamers hanging out of the hand grips. First order of business was rip out the streamers and then clip an Ace of Spades to the seat support so it flipped in the spokes and made motor noise. Man... every kid that saw it wanted to ride it. My dad realized I had swiped his Ace and eventually made me give it back and switch to a Joker. But that was almost as cool.
HA! Yeah. Candy cigs - which were actually crappy candy. Kinda pasty like sweet stale dough when you chewed em up - and those wax lips with some kind of kool-aid stuff inside.
