YAK Car Pic of the Day

You see, when you’re a grown-up, they’re no longer toys… they’re collectibles. Even if you’ve had them since you were a kid. Here’s my Matchbox Fiat 1500, first produced in 1965. It still even has the rooftop luggage. I think I used to buy these things for 49¢ when I was a kid. Some of these originals from the 1960s — especially if they’re still in the box — are selling for hundreds. I can’t imagine selling one, though. Too many memories.
