My Stuff: On the Hess Express

Who remembers the original Hess Truck, the green tanker offered every Christmas? That thing was awesome. Its headlights lit up, and it was just so...AWESOME. Sadly, my Hess truck didn't survive the years well. By the time I understood (too late) that it might be something worth keeping nice, it had already been beaten up pretty badly. In fact, I'm sorta ashamed to admit I ended up cutting the  wires which powered the headlights, simply because I wanted the tanker to detach from the cab like a real truck.

And they've been discontinued, and new ones are astronomical on eBay. At least I still have it, however, even though it's a bit worse for wear...
