Did you even read the article?

I loved Hot-Wheels and always asked for them for Christmas and Birthdays from Aunt's and Uncles...but they would cheap out and I would be opening Matchbox...or worse a Revell Car Model kit (Great fun to build...but you couldn't play with them and my mom wouldn't but airplane glue, she made me use Elmers).

I had a Hot Wheels track in the basement. Matchbox cars didn't work on the Hot Wheels track...they were too light!

I had similar experience with Matchbox, but HW must have been cheaper in my gen, they were $0.97 and my mom would let me get one or two sometimes when we went to K-mart or Wallly world. It kept me out of her hair while she was shopping, probably worth the $2 he!

Did anybody else have Corgi cars? I spent hours as a kid playing with my father's old ones, especially the DB5. Paradoxically, because we didn't have much money, and Papa's parents did, I had a ton of old cool stuff. Getting to buy a Hotwheels or Match Box was pretty rare. They were mostly gifts.

Loved those cars. I have to go look for them.

There were some in the toys at my Grandmas house if I remember correctly.
