Two things come to mind, a train set when I was 8 or 9, and a new 5-speed bike, the style with the shifter mounted on the frame between your legs and it also came with a bannana seat. Other than that, I never really had much growing up.
The best "toy" as an adult.... it was 2002, I get a call from my wife, mind you my position was eliminated in 2001, I was only working part time, and we had a new bussiness (which is still open and doing well). And we had 3 young girls under the age of 6, we really didn't need a 3rd vehicle. Anyway she calls and asks if I could meet her at someones house not far from my home to look at a fairly new Explorer.
As a young adult I always had a 4x4, or 2. And even when I got married had a fiull size Bronco 4x4 and a car. So it was a surprise to hear her call about this. Well, I met her and we bought the 2001 Explorer 4x4 which I still have and use for hunting. Great little ''truck", got a post a picture of it under the hunting rig posting.
