Monster trucks are awesome.
I went to a Monster Trucks Event inside Autzen Stadium as a kid
They trucked in a shitload of dirt and had a jolly old time
Trucks broke and did all types of crazy stupid shit
Was raining and they set off fireworks

Such a fun memory

My dad collected everything, so I did too.
I collected many cars as a kid, but Matchbox were the most realistic of the big 3 so I was more proud of that collection.
Although I have some Hot Wheels that are worth some real coin, rare ones in great condition.
They're all in good condition.

If anyone wants to see pictures I'm going through my stuff this month & will take some.

Funny thing about inflation.
There was a kid in line ahead of me in the grocery story buying a car, talking with the checker who was also a collector looking for a specific one himself.
I interjected and asked "how much?"
"$1", they said.
I said "interesting, the only thing inflation hasn't really hit in decades are hotwheels".

I didn't have many hot wheels type toys, I mostly collected Rocks as a kid
I collected everything including rocks.
I tossed the habit when I saw it controlling me.
I'll never toss my rocks, they'll be embedded on my headstone in 10 layers of plexiglass.

I never collected stamps though, I thought that was stupid.
Now I might find it mildly interesting.
Another man's trash...

I used to collect modern Hot Wheels, but after they started putting out Super Treasure Hunts I gave up. I liked finding the entire set of Treasure Hunts each year. In 2007 I bought four cases of cars trying to get one STH and ended up with zero. The previous year would have landed me four Treasure Hunts, and the 2006 Treasure Hunts were really amazing cars, whereas the car I was "chasing" was a tooned Camaro that I only wanted to complete my set.

Now I only buy Batmobiles, cars from movies or TV, or really oddball cars. It's just for fun now, as it should be IMO.

I also kept my old Redlines. They are like dinosaurs compared to modern Hot Wheels.
