story time – here it is. january, 2009 – get to hong kong ready to kick the year off with a banging new line of products capd had been working on hard for the previous 10 months. plus, i am there to show the bosses the first wave of 2010 products.
and then i see this…
whhhhhaaat? we didn’t do this. was i having a flashback? i mean, i ingested some things i’m not too proud of now back in the 70’s, but are they affecting me now?
i’m confused. then, they tell me our great distributor from germany, bauer, is bringing this, wants it in 4.5″and 1:24, is going to buy it. and i am like hhhuuuuhhhh?
now we did something like this 10 years ago, CH did a post about it here 1:18 VW BUG. and bauer was with us then. i guess they felt it was time for a flower power comeback.
and who were we to argue. i mean in the state i was in, i was looking around for the man, popping a stick of gum in my nouth, making sure i had nothing on me,…
they went on to do pretty well with the stuff. we never brought it in here, nor put it in the catalog. but they are out there, in the wild, probably in europe. somewhere.
that’s it – i’m out. gotta take my kid go buy a blacklight poster. peace.
