Merry Christmas

Have a great Christmas today.

This is me in 1974 with the best garage ever. I don't remember that particular day but I played with that Fischer Price Garage for years. The top level was cool. It had a turntable and elevator. But the Matchbox cars picked up awesome speed coming off the middle level so that was more fun.

Maybe that's why I still prefer to park my car on level 7 of the Seatac garage, instead of level 8. Not that I would ever try to see how fast I could come down that ramp...

My brother had that garage, and then all four of my boys played with the same garage, years later. Okay...I played with it too:)

Our son had that garage too, and he tried to see how many of his cars he could launch into outer space. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from Port Orchard!

My friend's little brother had one of those and I thought it was awesome. You'r right about the speed that that matchbox cars could pick up. We'd set it up at the top of the attic stairs and the cars would travel all the way down their parents back stairway to the kitchen. Their mom wasn't that tolerant and that was usually the end of the game but it was fun. Have a Great Christmas!

Merry Christmas!

Sea-Tac's parking garage is the only place I know that I can get dizzy spinning round and round in a vehicle!

My brother had that same garage! He and I would play with it for hours! And yes, we liked how fast the Matchbox cars would pick up speed on it, too! LOL! Thanks for sharing! :)
