Thought I’d post the pic. I checked the pegs first, and didn’t plan on bothering with the endcap considering they were pretty bare.
This is exactly how I found it:
So I took a closeup, and bought it.
As nice as that photo is, I like this one better, taken from the morning’s activities before finding the Super:
It was a nice morning.

Glad you had a great morning Lamley! Weird that no scalper picked that $uper up before you. I found a Regular Treasure Hunt the same way a couple weeks ago.
I always hoped to find one just like that. Sometimes packs fall behind those dump tray/boxes like that.. you’d think at least one Super would make it’s way back there..
Found three of those Velocita Super’s. One had a double card (the same card stuck together). 2 at a Walmart & one at Target. I really wanted to find the ’67 Camaro Fifty w/those awesome chrome Steelies, but I won’t complain.
Nice find on a nice day.. damn you John!
I found my first STH, the Greenwood ‘Vette, just like that in a Walmart in Central Cal- laying on the shelf like a misfit toy. I was stoked!
You must be careful. Sand people are easily startled, but they will be back. And in greater numbers. (Sorry, they nice picture of your morning commute reminds me of a certain desert planet in a galaxy far far away).
Well, if it were gonna happen, it makes sense that it’d be a model like the Velocita…kinda flies under the radar a bit. That’s one of those $uper casting choices that’s really only exciting to find BECAUSE it’s a $uper, not because it’s a cool model. Needless, to say, I’m not losing any sleep over not finding one.
The Datsun 620 $uper that I just scored today, on the other hand…well that made my entire day.
I wouldn’t have left that RED EDITION KOOL KOMBI on the pegs though.
I didn’t even notice that…I never found one of those pegged ever. Funny that there’s one of those AND a $uper in a trashed shipper. Never seen that before.
Congratulations on you Super T-hunt find John! I would have been thrilled just to find the Civic, RX-7 and 356A. I’m am hoping P & Q cases hit here soon.
