One of the comments likens him to Bob Ross-he does kind of have that sort of calming voice. Its a pretty impressive transformation.

Love this.
And the fact that there are others out there who care this much about those cars.

Still get excited when I see old original Hot Wheels card packaging today,like I did opening these up on Christmas morning back in 1970.The designers of these really had great imagination and colorful attention to detail back then.

Nice, I've been after Heavy Chevy's , Custom Camaros, and any Camaro I can find. Passion for Camaros started with the Flying Colors yellow Heavy as a kid in 74. The addiction is real. This year being the 50th, I've branched out a lil and got some I just like.......need more room!

What amazes me is Hot Wheels cost $1.00 when I was buying them as a kid, and they still cost $1.00 new today!
