This crazy Hot Wheels story may leave you feeling loopy

There are mind-boggling world records-like the 3:43.13 mile that Morocco's Hicham El Guerrouj ran in 1999-and then there are those that leave you scratching your head and wondering, "Wait, are you sure?" This one sent us down a rabbit hole.

There was a “video racer” that had a camera built into the car.

I really, really, really never understood the whole Hot Wheels deal.  Never got interested in the cars - none of them appeal to me.  I see booths set up at Swap Meets and Car Shows, and swarms of people collect them.  But why?  Someone out there help me understand the appeal.

When you get done with that, see if you can explain Beanie Babies...

Cause they're fun to look at and fun to play with DUB6. Weren't you a kid once?

Age-wise, yes.  But it was well before Hot Wheels.  We only had colored stones and smaller dinosaur bones to play with when I was young.  As far as "being a kid once" - not only once, but always...ask my wife, she'll tell ya. 😊

It is apparent that you and I are of different generations. As for asking your wife? I'll take your word for it. Stay young.
