These are the last six Hot Wheels cars I bought. Somewhere I have a box of 40 or so cars, I meant to give my niece and nephew years and years ago. But never did. I periodically have always bought them. I remember being interested that I found a Stutz car when I had a teacher named Schultz. In fifth grade.

And Jack and Eddie get such easy joy out of these cars, I can understand. I never turned into a car fiend, a car obsessive or even much of a mechanic.

So, it’s something that will continue. A connection across the decades, little bursts of being at the steering wheel, under control, imagined speed powered by little hands, imagination and bigger hands and nostalgia mixed with a little sense of driving your own destiny.
