Is it any surprise this is the Lamley choice for best regular Treasure Hunt of 2013?
No it is not a surprise. Yes, it is an RX-7, which is something we at Lamley are contractually obligated to like, but of the 15 regular Treasure Hunts released this year, only the Camaro Police car rivals this one for good looks, at least in our humble (and completely JDM-soaked) opinion.
The RX-7 once again sports the Japanese Nostalgic Car logo, which is becoming a common site on many Hot Wheels Japanese car castings (and we already know will appear again in 2014). And like the AE86 this year, it promotes the Japanese Classic Car Show in Southern California. The rest of the model is nice and clean.
So surprise! We like it.
