The Daily Ping

There were rumors of a Ping book, but those were started on the internet.

Hot Wheels v. Matchbox

When I was a kid, I loved to play with toy cars. I had a whole suitcase full, and that thing would be ready at a moment’s notice. Long before Micro Machines, though, I had a lot of Hot Wheels and Matchbox cars.

But there was always this rivalry between the two (similar to the short-lived Go-Bots v. Transformers one.) Matchbox didn’t have the cool packaging, but they had a number of neat cars. Hot Wheels had the marketing muscle and the great logo. But I sided with Matchbox. I’m pretty sure that Hot Wheels went all-plastic first, and Matchbox still had metal (or semi-metallic) parts on its cars. (Remember metal?)

Did you ever take sides in this car battle?

Hahaha oh my god…I was one of those kids playing with my Cadillac Escalade Bling and I still am *TODAY*

It’s so epic.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
