Just Unveiled: Hot Wheels Datsun 510 Wagon Super Treasure Hunt and Mainline...
Thanks to our friends at Speedhunters and Mattel Designer Jun Imai, the biggest news for Hot Wheels JDM fans is finally out of the bag.
Rumors have been swirling about a Datsun 510 Wagon Super Treasure Hunt, and now we can finally confirm it is coming. Speedhunters asked Jun to give a retrospective of his first 10 years at Mattel, and he delivered a doozy. No need for us to rehash. Just read the article and drool over the pics:
A Decade of Design: Jun Imai's Hot Wheels Favorites
The Datsun as a mainline will already be a very hot model, so we here at Lamley figure the Super TH will be white hot. The model is based on Jun's own 510 Wagon, only in red. (The Boulevard is closer to the green he used.)
And on top of that, Jun gives a shoutout to some of his (and our) favorite Japanese car enthusiasts, namely Japanese Nostalgic Car, Speedhunters, JCCS, and our Utah compatriots JDM Legends. This, friends, is an epic model.
