15 Super Treasure Hunts in 15 Days: 11 '69 Camaro...
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
04 '71 El Camino
05 Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake
06 '64 Buick Riviera
07 Bone Shaker
08 '62 Corvette
09 Toyota 2000GT
10 '72 Ford Ranchero
Like the Falcon earlier this year, the '69 Camaro is a repeat Super TH from 2012. Someone should ask Mattel at the convention what their reasoning was for this little development. Of course if we find some of the 2013 Supers repeating in 2014, we will know at least that it is a new tradition.
But they did what they did, and the 69 Camaro Convertible has been a Super twice. And it does look better in red than the 2012 version in dark grey. Other than that, it is not my favorite classic Camaro casting (I'd go with the COPO and '70 Road Race as my choices), and it was terribly overshadowed by the '67 that was released one month later.
Can you tell my excitement about this one?
(If you need this one, ebay is the place to go...)
