    Hot Wheels turns 50 today

    What an amazingly long time for a toy line to continually sell

    Anyone what to share their Hot Wheels memories?
    You are a bold and courageous person, afraid of nothing. High on a hill top near your home, there stands a dilapidated old mansion. Some say the place is haunted, but you don't believe in such myths. One dark and stormy night, a light appears in the topmost window in the tower of the old house. You decide to investigate... and you never return...

    I wish they would have done some anniversary releases of original sets. I know they have sort of done that over the years but few of sets were real true repros and the carded cars were ok, but sort of lacking compared to originals.

    I'm older than Hot Wheels? Wow. I thought they were way older.

    I stupidly gave most of my die-cast cars (mostly Hot Wheels) to my nephew-in-law when I was in my late teens/early 20s. I could have bought him a new set cheaper, and still kept my childhood toys. Sigh.

    I was never a HUGE car guy, but I liked to go to the narrow hallway of our house and have races, crashes, etc. The gold or red-rimmed Hot Wheels always seemed the fastest.

    Happy birthday!
