A childhood survivor

Illustration for article titled A childhood survivor

The other day I was going through some old buckets. And I found this bad boy. This is one of the first castings I remember getting. Matchbox’s 1995 Ford Probe casting. This car was a work horse. I played with this this car daily, for years! And it’s only a tad play worn. I was never the kid that threw around his cars. So this car looks pretty awesome for being played with for that long. Only a few spots where the paint has been chipped off. Its in better shape than most 1:1 scales here on the east coast. I haven’t seen one here in Delaware for a very long time. It’s been more than five years. There was only a few variants of this casting. One was red like mine, but with a yellow and orange streak instead of the white and orange streak like this one. They also had a purple variant they used for a few years. After that, I’m guessing they pulled the plug on this bad boy. To this day it has a soft spot in my heart for the nostalgia factor. Same with the Isuzu Rodeo casting. But enough of me blabbing. Here are some pictures!

I have given this car permanent desk duty. It deserves to be out and displayed. After hanging tough for all those years. It deserves to see the light of day. But this time it’s permanent!

Thank you all for the view!
