I've had this toy Mercedes for as long as I can remember. I don't how or where I got it, but it accompanied me through my childhood across three continents. This thing might be older than me as it's "Made in W. Germany". They really don't make them like this anymore. It's s so heavy it feels like it's made of lead. A real weapon in the right hands. The underbody casting is unreal, feels like it's forged. Better than many real cars made today. And look, it even has the max hp / rpm figure cast there. I mean come on! I'm not really partial to Mercedes, but I always loved this thing.
And today is a special day because I'm handing it over to my son to play with. Let's see if it can make some new memories and survive another generation. I know I missed the que but happy fathers day to me.
P. S. This might very likely also be a goodbye photo as I have come to know the amazing deconstruction powers of toddlers. Get a few of them, give them enough time and I swear they could bust into a bank vault 😂 So it's toddler vs. W. Germany. Place your bets now.
