I just got back from a run to the grocery store and as is my "habit"
when passing by the Hotwheels display (Target, Walmart, etc...) I
have to check to see if any new cars have been released of the type
that I collect ("real" race cars - and primarily open wheel cars at
that) - which is not very often. For the past year the selection has
been non-existent. Well this evening I was blown away at the real
odd ball stuff they had. Including a Ford Anglia 105E with race
decals done up in flat black and primer gray!
Two other really odd choices they had to select from were: Alfa
Romero B.A.T. and a Talbot Lago. Can't imagine that there are that
many people looking though a Hotwheels display that would even know
what those cars are. Of course with as odd and sculpted as those
cars are I had to get them too even though they don't fit within the
restricted parameters of what I normally look for. Also, I DO NOT
leave the cars in the box - that is stupid. I put them out on my
book shelves lined up like at LeMans in front of my books (+1,500
volume) in the library to be looked at, picked up and enjoyed.
My wife does hate to dust in here however. HeHe...
