Hess Toy Trucks - Did you own them? Which was your favorite one?

Recommended Posts

After 1983, a group of us swore to never buy a tank of Hess gasoline or one of their toys EVER again. As far as I know, every one of us have kept that pledge. However, there was one person (not part of this group) that used to buy one of his toys every year and held a smashing party in the Giants Stadium parking lot, Got to observe the proceedings once and it was quite a show. Anyone else see this?  

Not that I feel strongly about this, Jets fans are rarely bitter …

Crimson could not agree with you more. I have not bought a gallon of Hess gas or knowingly spent a red cent on any Hess product since he moved them out of NY

This one reminds me of the time I drove the EM-50 through Czechoslovakia with Russell, Stella and Louise.

My gram bought me one every year since I was born (86).  My mom now buys them for my kids.  She sold most at a garage sale.

Older ones when they limited number of them were worth collecting the last 20 years they've been mass produced. 

A collectible is  only worth what someone will pay for it.

It's as if they are treating it as a business.

I only went to Hess stations when I needed to take a sh*t.  He may have not have given a sh*t about the Jets but you could always count on a clean bathroom.  Joe Walton was no Mr. Clean.

I had one and smashed the sh*t out of it with my Tonka Dump Truck

Username checks out. This must have been back in the good old days when they still made tonka trucks out of metal.

My dad still gives me one every year. I'm 48.

I love it!

My mom still slips a ten or a twenty in my hand when I kiss her goodbye, lol.
