1982 Cannonade

We spent some time the past few weekends taking in some early garage sales. Yesterday I scored my first Hot Wheels find of the season. Cannonade was first released in 1981 wearing the same paint and tampo as this, but rolling on blackwalls. My find is from 1982, when Cannonade showed up with gold Hot Ones wheels. There are a few other variations – one in red, one in maroon, and a silver version called the Snake Buster Car which was part of the Snake Mountain Challenge track set.
