    Hess Trucks

    Has anyone ever noticed that when the new Hess truck comes out, the song is always the same...

    "The Hess truck's back and it's better than ever..."

    The "better than ever" part gets me everytime.

    Now that I think about that, yeah it is! There is only so much they can say. Perhaps the music which they use on the commerical is patented/was created for HESS to use, and they want to use it? ...

    You have wayy too much time on your hands to notice that - good find!

    LOL. I notice a 20 second difference between clocks. It's a gift [and a curse].

    I have also been receiving one for christmas every year that i can remember, either from my parents or grandparents, sometimes both lol.

    I can say I still enjoy getting them each christmas, I loved getting them when i was a kid and still love getting them now. One of the few things I just collect, has become like a tradition for me i guess.

    I have been collecting HESS trucks ever since I was a miniature. Since the first one I laid my eyes on I just had to own them all (and I do infact!).

    My opinion is they are garbage now!!!!

    Back in the 70s and 80s they were WELL MADE. Now they are made with the cheapest stuff and i really dont want one......
