I know they say a picture says a thousand words, (this took 2 pictures).... but you will never guess what happened to car #9, Holly Hatchback. She was made in 1997 and until July of 2008 she led a good life. In July, it was a dark day, she had just finished her first photo shoot , and was minding her own business. To her horror, in came Phineas, a visiting 3 year old. Now she knew her box said "safety tested for children 3 and up", but being an experienced toy she knew 3yr old boy + Toy + Car = Hollys in trouble. (of course I wasn't that smart). But I can assure you, that I rescued her from the hands of that "safety tester", her and all her accessories (even the bubble packaging). Alas, it was a tragedy as you can see from the pictures. Her cardboard resting place ripped. It just won't be the same without duck tape....... the pictures don't say...... and now you know the rest of the story,
So if you can see it in your heart to give her a good home, I know she will be grateful!
You might wonder why my husband quit collecting these cars in 1998. Well..... we got married in May of 1998 and we moved into my home, which was a mobile home. And even though it was a double wide and I had gutted it and remodeled it, t was no room for a growing collection. So..... they had to be boxed and put in storage. Now they are out and waiting for someone like you to make them a fine home.
I had a hard time trying to figure out how to put this collection together for you. By year??? No, because the first 3 cars were a set, that left Freddy out. Which would be okay except, Tina Turbo, who is 2 years younger than Tony Turbo has always had an eye on him! So how could I seperate them? I was going to put Pete's pick up with Horace n' Trailer but then I found out Freddy 4 wheeler can pull Horace n' Trailer. Now Tyler Taxi if I sold him seperately who could he drive to all the cool spots in town? Certainly that only leaves Holly Hatchbacks dog. And Holly Hatchback well that's obvious, I couldn't sell her by herself after the trauma she's been through. Besides her and Danni Driver (did you know Danni is a girl?) both have the eyes that look side to side when you push down and roll the cars. Patty Patrol I thought for sure I could sell seperatly, no cars want to be on the same street with a police car. Then I realized he might need Danni Drivers stop sign to control traffic, so that wouldn't work. That only leaves me Kelly Kompact & her sister Leslie LX. Easy you think, except Leslie LX is always getting everything she wants so now what??? That's when it hit me.... sell them all together then everybody goes together and no seperation anxiety.
