To celebrate, I'm taking it way back to one of my first Hess trucks. Not THE first, but the first one that I really loved, which kicked off my love of cars. The HESS Recreational Vehicle. This one came out during Christmas of 1998 and I was about 7 years old. It came with a motorcycle and dune buggy but that motorcycle is long gone.
The only hess truck that hasn't spend the past 15 years inside its box, tucked off in a corner. Still a beautiful model.
