Looks good. Wonder what kind of mileage it gets?

Talking Compassion

Post Hot Wheels

I only have a few Hot Wheels toys because I like stock things .

They used to have forklifts, old milk trucks and others odd balls, I bought those and they're lined up on the window sill over the kitchen sink where they make me smile as I wash up .

I know a "serious collector" (?) who noticed my '57 Chevy Hot Wheels and said it's rare and tried for years to buy it .

I cannot imagine any Hot Wheels being worth more than a couple - three dollars, I like it 'cause it's 40 + years old and gives me fond memories .

I can imagine this Caddy thing toned down a lot, raised up and used as a shop truck .

Keep the colors and chrome of course .

Talking Mobile Hot Tubs

I used to amuse my self by riding over to Hollywood and watching the endless parade of freaks & geeks, I've seen several stretched Hummers with hot tubs in the rear open bed, idiots splashing about as they cruise Hollywood Blvd drunk as skunks .

Then there was the guy next to my brothers shop who built the worlds fastest hot tub in an old Cadillac convertible, he took it to the salt lake and filled & drove it to set the world's record....

Something for everyone I guess .
