Back In The Day, I Could Afford a New Car
One of the things about a birthday is it kind of makes you nostalgic. I started thinking about some of the things I've had for years and some of the things I have lost over the years.
When I was 5 I got one of these from my aunt and Uncle for Christmas.
This thing was sweet: the wheels would turn and lock, so the car would make circles or go straight; it was motorized and would run at maybe 2 mph, and neatest of all, the headlights and taillights would light up through a fiber optic system from one bulb. And all this was in 1965!
When I was 11 we moved and I somehow lost track of where it went.
I'd almost give $100 for one.
But not quite; I ain't that nostalgic!
