We roll out the week reminiscing of afternoons as kids: playing hard, fantasizing about life on the USS Enterprise and snacking on pizza that comes from a vending machine. And what about racing Hot Wheels around the track just like real race car drivers? These grownups are set on making childhood fantasies real.
