What are some of the harder to get TH's? I have been searching for years now to find some and in the last 2 months I found two. The el camino and the hot rod looking car, Think it is number 1 in the series for 2011. Thanks.
The Torpedo.I have seen that one twice.The funny thing is that it was at Kroger.

Treasure Hunts tend to have metallic paint and rubber tires from what I gather.

My son is 14 months old and loves Hot Wheels. I've only found a couple Treasure Hunt cars (oddly enough at Big Lots). I open them though. My son loves cars so they do no good in the package.

I was at a store one day looking for the HW A-team van. The toy dept employee brought out a case to fill the bin. It was like blood in the water and a couple of HW "sharks" came out of nowhere.
They kept asking the worker, "where are the Treasure Hunts? Where are the TH cars man? I was like WTF is this. Then a TH fell out of the box and they both went for it like it was a piece of steak.
My local flea market has a booth that this guy buys and sells Star Wars and Hot Wheels. I've heard him tell people that he will pay them $5-$10 for regular TH and $20 for Super TH (I guess the difference is Super TH have rubber tires, and regular TH don't)

Then when you look at his HW cars for sale he has regular TH for like $35 and Super TH for $45-$50. The crazy thing is HW collectors pay that kind of money for a $1.07 car.
