More Treasure Hunts

I have a few Hot Wheels Treasure Hunts that I’m not so excited about. If they weren’t Treasure Hunts, I probably wouldn’t have bought them.

This Speedbox is from 2014.

This Tread Air is from 2015.

This Street Stealth is from 2018.

This Zombot is from 2018.

The circle-flame logo is on the robot’s knee.

My favorite cars

There are a lot of cars that I really like: the Tucker 48 from 1948, the Lotus S1 Esprit from 1977, and the Chevrolet Caprice Classic from 1991. But the one that’s very special to me is the Pontiac Firebird Trans-Am Special Edition from 1977. I have quite a few Pontiac Firebirds now, and the latest addition to my collection is this Custom ’67 Pontiac Firebird, which is a different colored version of one that I blogged about before.

It used to be that whenever I blog about scale models, only Pontiac Firebirds get a special tag. That’s changing now, as there is a new car that I feel is worthy of having its own tag. I first discovered Nissan Skylines last year, when I blogged about a Matchbox ’71 Nissan Skyline 2000 GTX and a Tomica Nissan Skyline 2000GT-R Racing. When I saw this Nissan Skyline H/T 2000GT-R from 1973, I decided that Nissan Skylines would get their own tag. (I’ve just added the tag to the two previously mentioned blog posts.)

Batmobile (1989)

It’s been more than two months since I last made a blog post because I’ve been very busy at work. I’ve bought quite a few scale models since then but I’ll post about these one at a time.

The name for the scale model below is “Batmobile” according to the card, but Hot Wheels Wiki calls it “Batmobile (1989).” (It was first seen in the 1989 movie.) The scale model below is from 2018.

Custom ’67 Pontiac Firebird

This Hot Wheels Custom ’67 Pontiac Firebird is a new casting. The Hot Wheels Wiki claims that the metal body is unpainted. The base and the interior are black plastic. The front wheels are smaller than those in the rear. I love the fact that the hood has been removed, exposing the engine.

The colors on the model’s engine (black in the middle, silver in the front) do not match the ones in the card’s image (silver in the middle, black in the front).
