No. Grocery store. Local chain. Find at least 2 every time. Found the Willys in an almost empty display then 2 mustangs in another. Found 5 mustangs a Willys and this super in about a weeks time. Needless to say I have another mustang for trade. 2 are gone one I'm keeping so 2 avail dupes.

Didn't want to post chain for scalpers since this chain seems an untouched little honey hole but willing to share with true collectors.

I must be weird, I prefer the regular blue roof version of these HW racing cars (except the tires do look better on the hunts)

Some people wonder what the appeal is of a TH. Sometimes it's not so much the car itself, but the scarcity. I think it's like winning the lotto in a small way, or like Charlie finding a golden ticket to go to the chocolate factory. To find one makes you feel lucky all day, and the car is just a token to remember that lucky day by.

Whether collector or scalper, the end result is the same - no more Hunts on the pegs. There could be a collector going to the same store saying to themselves, "I can never find Hunts at this store because of some scalper."

Yeah I hear ya. In 20+ years of collecting hot wheels from TRU, Target, Walmart, Kmart and those kids of places, I only have 2. I havent seen one on a peg in 8 years. I wont buy them at shows cause it takes away the fun of finding them on your own. It just sucks though when these stores have people working there taking them or they hold them for friends.
