So i was pretty bored, and started thinking that all my friends who used to play with toy cars in the dirt / in the house, anywhere and at any time we possibly could, well none of us ever grew up, and we are all into our cars today whatever they may be.

 

The friends who didn't really care for matchbox cars etc, well, now they don't care for cars other than a means for transport.

 

So how about the rest of you, are you the same? loved cars since you could walk?

 

And it got me thinking, what my favorite matchbox/ hot wheels car of all time was...

 

Mine was a Matchbox 1970 El camino, this one actually:

Never had an interest in cars until I got my license, so I voted no.

I played with matchbox cars a fair bit as a kid.

Anything that was a truck as a matchbox car.

I do remember my first serious remote control car though:

 

P.S

I suck at uploading images...

 

Why can't you just copy an image in?

My favourite toy car would have been a black Lamborghini Countach scale model. Pretty sure my hard parking days with the scissor doors started back then...

Aahh so many!

My favourite as a kid was probably my big lambo diablo.

Had a whole box of old matchbox cars my uncle gave me from when he was a kid. There were some classics in there.

and transformers! the vehicle forms were always way cooler to play with than when they were robots.

Me too I had a black and green NASCAR which my 6 year old now plays with.

Also loved my jet hoper rc, my bro and I had one each and used to drag them up and down the driveway until I smashed mine into the letter box!

Too bad I trashed a living hell out of them, after the company went bust they started becoming collectors items.

I think the Ferrari and the mercedes truck are the two first toy cars I ever got as a kid. The other one is the Corgi Sanitation truck which are worth nearly $100 in mint condition. Sadly I enjoyed mine too much as a kid :lol:
