I wonder what kids were fascinated with a few hundred years ago. Did they dream about riding horses or sailing boats? When I was little, cars were an obsession for most of the boys I knew. We played with Hotwheels, matchbox, slot car and radio controlled versions. We played a lot of computer driving games as well. When I drove a real car for the first time I was amazed at how similar it was to the video games I had been playing. Things haven’t changed much. Now when I get home from work each day my 9-month-old son likes to sit on the couch with me and watch the cars drive by our house.
