1970 Trans Am becomes a Hot Wheels. Will redone 350Z be next?

Hot Wheels Legends Tour rolls on, with next stop September 18 in Houston


A completed Hot Wheels was unveiled and another contestant qualified for similar consideration as the 2021 Hot Wheels Legends Tour staged a virtual stop this past week.

Unveiled in 1:64 scale was the 1970 Pontiac Trans Am that won the Legends tour in 2020, thus earning Riley Stair the right to have his home-built car turned into a toy for all to enjoy.

Winning the most recent and virtual tour stop was this Nissan 350Z

Hoping to follow in Stair’s tire tracks is the most recent tour-stop winner, Ashley Robinson, who won for a customized 2003 Nissan 350Z coupe. The car had been wrecked but Robinson brought it back to life with an exoskeleton mimicking the car’s original body shape. 

The redo also featured twin turbochargers for the sports car’s engine.

The next stop on the Hot Wheels Legends Tour is scheduled as a live event September 18 in Houston, Texas.
