The 2016 Hot Wheels Corvette Grand Sport is definitely the best-looking Regular Treasure Hunt in a long time...

Of course that is not saying much.

But before I open the floodgates of Regular TH-aimed vitriol, let me say once again that I like how Hot Wheels does the Regulars.  Keep 'em kid-aimed, keep the collectors away, and let the Supers be the focus for the diecast nerds.  I hope it stays that way.

But a little collector-aimed bone thrown our way isn't a bad thing.  The Fast Gassin' was probably the most collector-aimed regular in 2015, while the Subaru WRX STi took the prize in 2014.  The '71 El Camino too, although it was part of a very kid-aimed campaign.

Nonetheless, it has been awhile.  But this Corvette will definitely be gobbled up by the collectors.  It is just too good-looking.  Maybe we can leave a few for the kids, but something tells me that is not going to happen.

I have no idea if this means we will see more Regular TH's like this in 2016, so we will just wait and see.  For now this one it pretty darn cool.

Of course there is a Super in this batch as well.  I don't have it, but it is the Hudson Hornet, and darned if it doesn't look nice too:

And lastly, the Grand Sport isn't the only Corvette in the batch.  There is also a Then & Now pair, the '14 Stingray and the other Grand Sport.  It is nice to see the pair released together, instead of batches apart.  It makes sense for the buyer to see both.  And there is a good chance whoever sees these two will pick them up:

    1. It would have made sense to pair the new Grand Sport with the 63 Grand Sport.

    2. Not against this Corvette but I'm not particularly enthusiastic about it so therefore I so far have no plans in purchasing the vehicle.

    3. Did they lowered the stance on the grand sport roadster? It looks like they did but i could be wrong...

    4. Vince is today a 210 lb certified Nitric Rush trainer and a former Canadian Fitness Model champion. He was once just a mere 149 lb skinny man. He has seen and worked with everyone from skinny men to current Body Building champs and helped them all to boost their muscle mass and tone.

    5. The Hornet deserves to be riding on basic whitewalls with gold chrome!
