Starting a business is the best option for elders, but otherwise, the entertainment and psychiatric categories are best.    How about a greeter at a store? What could the elderly do in entertainment? Clap?   I think clapping would be good. Some of us can even do it with one hand!
Its rated M for mature
Mattel. Elliott Handler (owner at the time) wanted a toy car. His R&D team developed it.
It depends on the model. Older models have bearings of an outer diameter bigger than regular skateboard wheels, and the axle is larger than the inner diameter of standard bearings. Newer models may have switched to a standard bearing. Skateboard shops sometimes have the proper sizes for older...

  The problem with going to one website is the fact that prices are always in flux. They change constantly. So one of the best websites to visit is Ebay, where you can research what people are spending on 1983 Hot Wheels. On the left side of the search page is a column with "completed" auctions....

Probably because it's supposed to go fast and make sparks :l
Tommy Houston / Roses cars are very common. New, in the package, it is worth only the current price of a common Hot Wheels car at a discount store: about $1 - $2.

Depending on the condition, and if it has red line or plain blackwall tires, these vans can go as high as $60 or $70. Check ebay--usually a good gauge of what they're going for currently.

The Silver Streak made by Ohio Toy was a pressed tin toy train with the engine representing the M10000 as made by Union Pacific. It had two cars to make the modern toy train of the time (1934-5).

This is my secret. Soak them in brake fluid for a day or two & it will come off with no damage at all to the plastic. A modeler showed me this many eons ago & is the only thing that really works well. It does no damage to the plastic as long as you only soak long enough to get paint off. if...

  Anything diecast would be very difficult considering the tools and equipment you would need, but I know many people that use sheetmetal to fabricate truck models, constuction equipment models etc. You would obviously have to have the skills and training and the equipment, but it is somewhat...

It's not possible, unless you have hot glue.
No. Unless you have about $100,000 to spend.

  Hot Wheels did not exist in 1957. Mattel introduced the first Hot Wheels cars in 1968.
There were a number of 60 Original figures, but there were also a number of Special Edition figures too, such as the Cave Troll, a Fell Beast and a Nazgul.
The best place would be Ebay, Craigslist or local Garage, Flea Market or Antique sales.
Because Elliott Handler (co-owner of Mattel at the time) saw his  grandchildren playing with another toy company's cars. He said to  his team, "Why don't we make toy cars?" And they did.... it all  started in 1966. They were offered to the public for sale in 1968.   Cloud Chaserz

In my opinion, Hot Wheels.
You can buy it on ebay, but you'll have to make more specific searches like BeyBlade Starter Set cause I found a BeyPointer w/ some extra items.
It all depends on condition, color, interior color, wheels.... If you have a photo, please post it. It will help a lot.
Amazon.com, eBay.com and much, much more.

It's worth around 10 dollars a car. You can buy these cars in large  groups fairly inexpensively. It might be worth hanging onto a while  longer before you sell.
