15 Super Treasure Hunts in 15 Days: 04 '71 El Camino...
With the last Hot Wheels Super Treasure Hunt of 2013 hitting the pegs, it is time look back at them all. Over the next 15 weekdays, the Lamley Group will showcase one Super each day, in order from first released to last...
If you missed it:
01 '72 Gran Torino Sport
02 Corvette ZR1
03 '73 Ford Falcon XB
Hot Wheels loves the El Camino. Actually, who from my age group doesn't love the El Camino? Don't get me wrong, I would never actually want a real on in my garage, but we all knew someone who had one in the driveway, and it is still a fantastic reminder of another era.
And of the Hot Wheels versions, this '71 casting takes the cake for me. A great stance, and it just shines as a Super TH. Bronze on bronze with gold and gold wheels. Not bad. 70's browns all spectraflamed up...
