First Look: Hot Wheels '69 Corvette Super Treasure Hunt & Mainline...
Alright friends, you are going to have to give this one a chance. Or not.
Super THs generally garner a lot of excitement, especially Corvette Supers. But it seems that the Greenwood Super got a bit of a mixed response (we absolutely love it, many of you don't), and early indications on the '69 Vette are that there are not a lot of fans.
We get that. Cars with flames really aren't our thing here, so this definitely isn't out favorite of the year. And it is probably safe to say that metallic purple cars aren't our thing either.
But, on the other hand, the blue flames over the spectraflame purple with black-rim real riders actually makes for a cool-looking model. Or maybe it just looks better than the basic version, making us believe we really like it.
Alright, we are probably not huge fans, but we are trying to stay positive. This car will definitely pop on the pegs. Can we say that it has grown on us, and we like the lowered stance of the Super compared to the basic? We have no idea how that happened, whether it is a fluke with the examples we have, or something to do with the wheels, but we can get behind the stance.
We may not like it a ton, but we reserve the right to like it more as we go along. Let's see if that happens...
