Okay Mish, this one is for you. I was talking to her on the phone, and admitted one of my very shameful fetishes: I like Chevron Cars. You buy them at Chevron gas stations. They're about $8 - 9, and STURDY. The first one we bought was Brent Blizzard. Mish asked if I owned enough cars to do a "Car of the Month." In shame, I hung my head and admitted, "yes."
It seemed harmless enough, just a little car - ONE! One car, just like the ones that the cousins had. But then, like the mafia, we got sucked in. Oh yeah! It's not just me, Matthew likes them too! It's an addiction. They have so many cars: collector cars, old cars, snazzy cars, limos, convertibles. Forget the kids, I started collecting these beauties for myself! They are the perfect size. You don't step on them, and heaven forbid that you do, they don't break! They can go in the dirt, on linoleum, and even survive a number of washings in the tub. It's madness.
Oh? Where can you get one? Well, like any addiction, there are legit sources, and black market sources. You can try and go to a Chevron station that sells them. Some stations do, and some are freaking apostates! If you don't want to be seen at these shady establishments, or feel like you have to drag along a child, "Uh, this is my son, and he's looking for Hank Hot Rod . . .", well you can have it delivered to you - for a price. Here's the site: http://www.chevroncars.com/
Go ahead, take a look around, it won't hurt - until you find something you can't live without, or *gasp* the one you want that has been DISCONTINUED! Horace n' Trailer, it goes with Pete Pickup truck that we already own. Why can't I find it anywhere?! For the longest time I could not find it. I had to go to the black market of eBay to find one. Paid more than $8 *curses!* and the box the toy came in was CRUSHED. It's a good thing that I'm sane, and not a collector. I might have been upset!
