Big things with little cars
Big things with little cars

Alright, this is it! The last post about this collection (actually...not really, I do have a couple more....). But, it is the last post about the cars themselves!

These are the cars I set aside for myself. I split them into three sections.

1) These are the cars that hold sentimental value to myself, as they are cars that I had a special bond with as a child. The Cadillac, the Mustang and the Winnebago were the actual cars I had growing up!

Then there’s this red 540k. When I was little, my grandmother had a pool, and during a summer I spent with her (instead of normal daycare), she taught me how to swim. She told me one day, that if I could swim across the pool without touching the bottom, she would take me to get a new car...and this is the one I chose!

Next up, these are the cars that I set aside because I associate them with memories of Shawn (the original collector):

This Camaro was set aside because it looks just like the one he and I rented for a massive road trip from Vermont to Florida after we learned he wasn’t going to make it much longer:

And then this Mazda6 is a duplicate of his first brand new car, bought through me!

The rest are just cars that I remember us playing with together:

And then there are these cars, which, frankly, I kept them because I wanted to!
