    So it's story time again... LOL

    Well, apparently I had an Eclipse before I even knew what they were. Back when I was young, a child I mean, my mother bought me a Hotwheels easter basket. I loved Hotwheels, I collected them. A very appropriate basket indeed.

    I played with the cars from that basket for probably 5 years. And then I guess I grew out of the stage of playing with them, and just kept collecting them and displaying them.

    Anyway, here is one of the cars that was in that basket. It was a yearly basket thing, so I'm giessing it was new when she bought it. The car is stamped 2002. Looks very similar to the F&F Eclipse. So I've had an Eclipse for many years and never even knew about it.

    And here's the other part of the story. I painted a Hotwheel to look just like my friends Charger.

    Hot wheels is a big thing to some people. I have been looking for a die cast of the 3G from Fast and Furious and see them on line for $200 bucks or more ..

    Black'98dsm I have the same one, but a little better condition haha. I may see if I can dig it out of my daughters stock pile she inherited. Its funny the things we do when we are kids that mean something when we are older haha.
