Alright, we have already named your choice for Best Super and Regular Treasure Hunt, but why not get to the fun stuff.
Well, actually, it is not as fun as picking the Worst New Model. It appears the Mattel designers take a bit of pride making the worst new model list, but it might be different here. Why? Because this may have been the best year of Super Treasure Hunts yet. Like we discussed yesterday, the Secret Super concept has been a great development for Treasure Hunt collectors, not only because they may be more accessible for some collectors, but because they are so darn good looking. So instead of talking “Worst”, maybe we should call it “Least Good Looking”.
But we asked, and you responded, in droves.
And the results:
#1 – Volkswagon Beetle: (photo courtesy of South Texas)
#2 – ’71 Maverick Grabber:
#3 (tie) – ’11 Dodge Charger R/T:
#3 (tie) – ’69 Camaro:
If these four choices for Worst Super aren’t evidence enough of how nice the Supers were this year, I don’t know what is. All of these look good. The Beetle won running away, and my guess is because it is the least realistic of the bunch. But even then, the design is fantastic, and those white rims look great. And the other three? All look great as well. Classy designs, and great wheels. It is just that there were others, like the 599XX, Challenger, and S2000, that look even better.
And the Worst Regulars:
#1 – Surf Crate:
#2 – Ducati 1098:
#3 – Tyrell P34:
Not a surprise at all. I don’t even know what to say about them. A generic (the Surf Crate got the most votes by far), and two models not too familiar to a lot of people. I think these were easy to predict.
