New York/New Jersey

Garfield Walmart
June 16, 2018

Hot Wheels fans brought the heat at this packed Legends Tour stop—but only one cool car could be the next finalist. Described as a “fighter jet you can drive on the road” by its owner and winner, Luis Rodriguez, the “2 Jet Z” has a body like a bullet and a roof like the cover of a jet. Originally a Nissan 300ZX, it has a Toyota Supra engine with 627 horsepower and a Subaru STI 6 speed transmission, and it was built by Rodriguez to honor the men and women of the armed forces. Now that’s a solid salute!

One finalist from each of the 15 cities will join Hot Wheels at SEMA 2018 in Las Vegas, where one lucky winner’s car will be immortalized as a Hot Wheels Legend and turned into a die-cast car that will be sold around the world. For more information, visit hotwheels.com/legendstour and follow the tour on the Hot Wheels Facebook and Instagram accounts, as well as with #HotWheelsLegends.
