I was there at the beginning when Hot Wheels hit the toy store shelves. A friend and myself trekked down to the local department store and started our collection. In the beginning I remember making our own racetrack out of construction paper, but it wasn’t very good. We bought the racetrack, more cars and raced away. The car pictured above was one of my first purchases. I loved it then and still love it today. (Thankfully I haven’t thrown out ALL of my old toys.)
Please keep an eye out for this car and report immediately to the police. My mother-in-law is on the loose again.
