15 Super Treasure Hunts in 15 Days: 15 '71 Dodge Demon...
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
11 '69 Camaro
12 '67 Camaro
13 Toyota Tundra
14 '07 Ford Mustang
And here we are, finally to the last Super TH of 2013. We haven't shown the Demon on Lamley before, as we finally got one after starting this feature 15 days ago.
So, as usual, we have one in hand, and after a less-than-stellar reaction when it was first announced, it is growing on us. But that is what Super TH's do. So once we have moved away from the freshness of the Demon Super, we think it will settle somewhere in the bottom 5 of our Super TH list this year.
But that does not mean it isn't good-looking. There are just better Supers this year. We will see where it ranks when we do the Lamley awards. I could be way off, but I think it will fall somewhere towards the bottom for most. And yes, Mopar fans, we aren't ignoring you. But c'mon, the Demon is not a Challenger, or Cuda, or Charger. Right?
So it has been a good 15-day-run. Super Treasure Hunts these days are just simply pretty, and to me 2013 is the best-looking batch so far. My guess is 2014 might surpass it, but what do I know?
(Get the Demon on ebay...)
