    What happened to all the cool HotWheels cars? All their stuff has non-standard gay wheels and funky fat front sections etc.. Makes it hard to pick out anything for the Jr. Hell, few of their cars would even fit on any of their own tracks? :confused:

    They have a couple of different series that are out there that are pretty cool. I buy every Corvair I come across and they have one series that is just racing cars that look like honest to goodness vehicles, not those stupid aberrations with the huge front tires, that I try to pick up as well.

    Matchbox is where it's at.... I always liked the isuzu Rodeo for some reason... I had the one with the surfboard, I had the "Mr. Fix It" one, and another one that was just plain... At least I think the "Fix It" one was a Rodeo... May have been something else, it's been so long I don't remember...
