I was playing with my grandkids this morning. They brought a back pack full of little cars they have collected to play with. I sat there watching them make the roads through the dirt and my mind went wild with fond memories of the same 55 years ago. I can remember some of the cool roads, bridges, and houses I made from sticks and scrap wood. I can honestly say I don't think there was ever anything I had more fun with!!!
They have some mighty fine castings I hated seeing run through the dirt and gravel roads, but the cars were theirs that papa had given them over the years.
Especially this 7 dollar Greenlight COPO Camaro. Cody wanted it for his birthday, so papa bought it for him. Papa don't even have it!!! LOL!!!
Who ever knew 55 years ago that a small boy, a hand full of little cars, and a pile of dirt would turn into this today???
