I'm not, really, much of a collector...I had a bunch of Hot Wheels cars when I was a kid...and, over the last year or so, I've been picking up the occasional car on ebay from my childhood. Well, I guess I don't have to do that any more.
I was putting some engine parts up on the shelves in the rafters of my Mom's pole barn today...and I saw this...
And it was FULL of my old cars! I'm not sure when these cars were put in this box...some time in the '90's, by the looks of it. There are a fair amount of cars from the 90's in there (I got into collecting around then), but, my original cars were in there as well.
I sorted through and pulled a bunch of original redlines and blackwalls out of the bigger box and I'll be going over them for a while.
These two, Larry's Towing and Second Wind were two of my favorites...as you can see by the condition. I loved these cars.
I could only find this Sweet Sixteen car...a Custom Mustang that I painted white (it was a red car, so it's a fairly pricey car). But, there should be a Custom Cougar in there too....but, I didn't see it today.
This was such a cool find for me...what a trip down memory lane. I might just have to do some racing with these old cars before the track comes down.
