Mercy me, this is cool.
The second of two Convention Models for the upcoming Hot Wheels Nationals in Dallas, Texas, has been unveiled. The first model is the ’83 Silverado, and it is nice. This one? The ’66 Super Nova, and it’s incredible.
First off, the ’66 Super Nova has eased in nicely as a collector favorite. As well it should, because it’s a beautiful casting. Second, how cool is that copper color?!? I assume Steve Vandervate did the deco for this one, and it’s stunning as usual.
But it’s the third reason that throws this model in the “HOT DAMN!!” category. Look at the roof:
That is BEDAZZLED! Yeah, it’s textured. Is that not the coolest? A friend at Mattel hinted awhile ago that the roof of one of the Nationals models would steal the show. I think we know what that model is.
5000 of these have been produced, and it will sell at the show alongside the Silverado.
So here is the list so far:
- Convention Model #1 – ’66 Super Nova
- Convention Model #2 – ’83 Silverado
- Dinner Model – We will find out there
- RLC Party Model – We will find out there
- Finale Model – We will find out there
That’s the list we will know until April, but that’s ok. What I hear is that we are in for a treat with these three you-to-be-unveiled models. I’m way cool with the first two.
