I am fully aware that the non-redline-collecting, jdm-loving, hw-nostalgia-ignoring blogger writing this has no right to even comment on the legacy of the ’67 Camaro. The ’67 is Hot Wheels royalty, an almost sacred casting. All the evidence you need is to see the strong reaction to the casting losing its opening hood and metal chassis. Needless to say, there are strong opinions about the ’67 Camaro, and many, many collectors out there more qualified to discuss it than me.
So take it with a grain of sale when I say that this Camaro, with its sealed hood and plastic base, is the best-looking ’67 Camaro Hot Wheels has ever done.
There might be 8 billion ’67 Camaros done, and clearly I am not familiar with all of them, so I will happily take a gander at your choice of the best ’67, so leave that in the comments below. But I will stick with this one. A gorgeous color combo, the new basic steelies, and a clean Camaro-ish side and hood stripe. I just love it.
And it is at Walmarts now, as part of the new Camaro Generations set:
The models are great, but the gems for me are the bookends, the ’67 and the ’18 SS. The ’18 is the same Special Edition Camaro in the mainline, but this time in satin orange, and it is gorgeous.
The others are in the video, and also worth getting. But these two are the no-brainers for me.
It seems Hot Wheels has all kinds of surprises up their sleeve for 2018. I know of some, but am unaware of most. What I do know is I need to save a lot of space in the collection. There will be a lot of models released that will need a spot. The ’67 most surely took one of those spots.
