Built-not-bought is the name of the game at The Legends Tour—and a father-son team nailed it in Seattle. The winning car—a 1973 Datsun 240-Z—was a rebuild project for Bill Brinkworth, who shared the spotlight with his 11-year-old son Dylan. The car’s license plates read “SaiSei,” which translates to “reborn” in Japanese, a nod to the duo’s three-year recovery of the car with a friend. You know what else fits nicely on a license plate? LEGEND.
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.
