I had a chemistry set........and found out the purple powder stuff tasted like sugar, and the blue liquid stuff had a taste reminiscent of oranges.


Put them together and BAM Chemistry set Kool Aid

I had....mainly Matchbox and Hotwheel cars, then I got into builing models, and did a lot of custom stuff on them (Exhaust, bodykits, etc) and now I work on real 1:1 cars...

I too am like Satty, although i am younger but still. I still have most if not all my hotwheels (i crushed the ones i didnt like ). I got into building models and doing a few different things with them, nothing major. We have atleast 50-60 model car/trucks/boats/planes, some built and some not. The moved onto working on bikes and now soon to be real cars
