When I was in high school I came home one day and found a ton of trash bags by the curb. Apparently my dad had been spring cleaning...which included my room. Turns out he had thrown out my Hot Wheels! What the what? We spent the next hour going through each trash bag until we found them again. You do NOT throw away a girl's car collection.
I recently moved in to a new house and am still unpacking. Yesterday I came across what is left of my Hot Wheels collection and had to break a moment to remember the fun of driving them. I am very lucky to have two little boys that also love to play cars...though they won't get their hands on these treasures!
