      If I had back all of the little cars I had as a kid, I would be a rich man today if the prices I see on EBAY or at antique shops are any indication. I had a car like the yellow one as a kid.

        It's purely nostalgic entertainment for me, too. I'm not an informed expert, I just know what I remember and like. It's usually enough for me to just find them and take a pic, but occassionally I'll spend $3 or $4 just as a souvenir of the day

              Quartzo was a race car brand owned by a South American diecast company named Vittesse. I’m not sure if they’re stil in business.

                Same. The cars I learned about first were my slot cars. I had a batmobile, a green hornet, and a couple others that proved to be worth a pretty good chunk of change. 'Course I didn't realize it until I gave them away.

                  I had many larger metal cars as a child. On some I took a scissor and cut slivers off the rubber tires so that they made noise when i ran them around the floor.
