When I was a kid I played with Hotwheels and Matchbox cars just like every other kid. I wish I still had
some of the cars I had then, but I had a love affair with garage sales and I would put a price tag on
anything if it meant I might get some spending money in return.
ML and I were talking about the toys we had when we were kids one night while we were picking Desmond's
cars up from the floor. I checked out eBay, just for the hell of it and found some Hotwheels cars circa
my childhood listed on there for three hundred bucks. ML had a great idea. Every time we get Desmond a new
Hotwheels car, we should get another one and leave it in the package and put it away for later on. So the
thinking is that perhaps by the time Des is ready for college, these cars might be worth something. And you
know, if not, his kids will have a collection of cars to play with.
