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?
