It’s fitting that a car with history would overtake the competition at the Legends Tour stop in the Motor City. Built in 1959, Jeff Peterson’s winning 1947 Crosley 301-Chevy originally belonged to his father, who bought it to get into the pits at the Detroit Nationals and then turned it into a full-blown drag car. After racing the car for years, his father sold it, but Peterson and his brother never lost track of it. They eventually bought back the award-winning car and restored it to all of its drag-racing glory—and proved that it’s still a winner at this stop of the Legends Tour.

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 WheelsFacebook andInstagram accounts, as well as with #HotWheelsLegends.
