I grew up playing with Hot Wheels. Hot Wheels were cool. That coolness transfered to the real thing when I got old enough to drive. I even had a Mustang that I entered in a few cars shows. That fondness for cars still brews deep inside, but remains in check for now.
Though our tastes in cars differ a bit, my brother has the same fondness. I recently sneaked a shot of his Mercury Marauder wheels. It’s one of those sleeper cars. It blends in with most street cars, that is until he chooses to lead the pack.
