Some people might scoff at paying $3 for a hot wheels car instead of $1. These people don’t know the simple pleasures of a hefty, metal on metal toy car that tracks perfectly straight.
It’s getting rarer and rarer for me to open a new mainline car that actually tracks straight without tweaking the axles. *sigh* Sadly I haven’t seen any Metal/Metal collectors series with plastic wheels lately either. They’re the best for actually playing around with.
