Squareback Sunday

Needless to say, the Datsun hype would drown all the rest of the cars from the Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary Favorites Car Culture set. However, from the time I saw the cars being opened, I had a different view. The Datto was probably not the must-have in the set, at least to my eyes.

The glorious ‘69 VW Squareback would be that. I always felt like HW had done the absolute best it can do for the casting here; a neat colour scheme, a fitting decal scheme and (am not I surprised by this) tampo work which as absolutely screaming perfect, coupled with the fitting deep dish RR steelies. It is hard to find fault with this. Quite hard.

The neat decal theme is apparently continued in the Shop Trucks series’ VW Caddy. Unfortunately I don’t have that for comparison here.

I am not too sure on whether the Squareback is a favorite among the collectors. However, this is a class act. Take a bow, Mattel.
