Do you remember your first Hot Wheel? I do...it was a Rodger Dodger in plum with flames. I played with that car until the paint was almost completely worn off. To this day it is my favorite casting.
Of coarse that was only the beginning of my passion for cars. Every week when I would get my allowance ($1) I would go right to the store and pick out a Hot Wheel. I had tunnel vision, I saw no other toys in the store, must find Hot Wheels. I would spend what I perceived to be hours trying to find that one car I really wanted. The agony of deciding on only one car when there were so many I loved. The makes, the models and Ohhh those COLORS. Which one do I choose? The Heavy Chevy, Top Eliminator, Volkswagen, Monte Carlo Stocker? This was too hard a decision for my tiny brain. Somehow I managed to choose.
When I was young I never pampered my cars. Of course if I had I'd be a very rich woman right now. Those cars would attempt record breaking distance jumps running on those orange race strips with the ramps. They almost always failed to land on their wheels, but the wrecks were fantastic. My other favorite game was smash up derby. My friends and I would aim those cars at each other and push those cars as hard as we could in the hopes of splitting the cars in half. With a little luck they met each other in the center in a glorious crash and didn't continue there journey directly into our knees. Which happened more times than I can count. Did I mention we weren't very smart? That was an owiee!
Now I've managed to collect 1000's of diecast cars. Hot wheels, Johnny Lightning, Matchbox, Green Light, Muscle Machines, 1/64 to 1/18 scale. I've also managed to mature just a teeny bit since then, so now all my loose cars are preserved properly. Not as much fun though! Those Protecto Paks just don't run nearly as fast down the track! Ohh well.
