Now this is a fun one.
A little perusal of the world wide web has yielded a bit of news that is bound to excite a few of you. You can bet your arse that it excites us.
News has just broken, and grainy pics have appeared, that confirm that one of the upcoming new models in the 2014 Hot Wheels mainline is yet another JDM gem, the Datsun 620 Pickup. It seems that Hot Wheels’ commitment to signature Japanese rides continues, and this is a fantastic choice.
The truck appears to be stock height, and carries details that scream another Jun Imai creation, highlighted by the fantastic and utterly familiar “DATSUN” decorating the tailgate. And if you look closely, that appears to be the Japanese Nostalgic Car logo on the rear panel. Considering JNC usually has preview examples of the models bearing their logo, I would imagine we will see far better quality pics on their site soon.
So the JDM love continues. AE86, 240Z, Bluebird, Hakosuka, Kenmeri, RX-7, 510 Wagon, Celica, 2000GT, and now the 620. 2014 appears to be off to a great start…
