My Childhood Collection

These are the cars I had as a kid. Only a few are near collectable condition but I still love them. I played with them hard. For many hours, these cars raced down orange track strewn across front steps, sidewalks and driveways. Some were acquired as a result of winning a race or as part of a trade, but most came at Christmas time or when I saved enough allowance to buy one from a local Two Guys, Lionel Kiddie City or G.C. Murphy's . By the time I was about nine years old, my cars started to look rough so I tried my hand at customizing with Testors model paint and glitter. Despite the pitiful results, I still feel lucky to have them after all these years. This collection includes a variety of diecast brands.
