I Feel for my Mother - In retrospect

 When I was young, I used to have a number of "Crash Cars." Now I hear I called them that originally because I thought they were cars that crashed and were then rebuilt smaller.

On the other hand, I remember them as cars crashed against each other. I crashed them at about a 45-degree angle, two at a time, like the playoffs. I saw this today, and I immediately thought of my mother.

Looking back, it had to be a little annoying. The sound, the yells,  and the crashing of expensive toys. FYI - these were MUCH bigger than a Matchbox or Hot Wheels toy.

Here are just some of the ones I had, that I remember.

PS - The Ambulance did very well in this scenarios.
