I was collecting modern (and modern only) HW Mustangs and Shelbies utill April 2014. Till then I could have about ten cars and I didn’t want to involve myself in expanding my collection by adding to it some classics models. But it all changed when I went to my parents for Easter. During my stay I visited the same toy shop where I bought my yellow Matchbox. I was looking for something new but there was nothing that would interest me. Nothing except something non-modern…
A good few weeks after I bought my first HW Mustang, I encountered even better looking model that focused my full attention on it. There was no other choice, I just had to get. Period.
It all begun somewhere between October and November 2013, right after moving from one place to another. Some day I went to get groceries in a local supermarket. I don’t remember exactly how I found myself standing next to the wall full of HW cars, but I do remember that just out of curiosity I started to seek for a Mustang. And… I found one! I didn’t even bother to think about it, I just grabed it and throw it into my basket.
In 2007 (I think) my elder brother and I visited a toy shop while we were bored during vacation . We didn’t have any plan or intention to buy anything, we just wanted to check out the stock – that’s all. And somehow he left the shop with: dark burgundy HW Buick Grand National, HW ’70 Plymouth Road Runner painted like a cab and one other HW model that I can’t remember. And for myself I got Matchbox – yellow Ford Mustang GT Concept. I bought it because at that time I was starting to fall in love with Mustang in scale 1:1 and I thought it would be nice to have it at least in 1:64.
