I'm so glad over the years that every time that I bought my nephew a new Hess gas station truck I also bought an extra one to put up as a collectors item. They're also nice to display in my son's room. He keeps on looking at them but I tell him that those are the ones we put up for some day when he has a little boy of his own. He says "what!!!" with a laugh. Anyhow, the one's that are over ten years old have doubled in price. So I guess in a way it's a small savings account.
