We've experienced firsthand the Hot Wheels Legends tour (at last year's SEMA Show, among other places) and our inner kid went ape shit. Seeing 1:64 scale cars brought to life in full size is probably one of the most brilliant ideas ever, and now is jumping into this year's national search for a life-size custom car worthy of being immortalized as a die cast toy. The Honda Super Tuner Legends Series will be the exclusive live custom tuner component of the Legends Tour and will be making stops all across the West, starting with a visit to HW's HQ at Mattel on Saturday, April 18th.

The Honda Super Tuner Legends Series will work like this: A panel of expert judges will select one Honda vehicle from each HSTLS stop as a Honda Super Tuner Finalist. Four finalists will compete for the "Honda Super Tuner" title, which includes the opportunity to have their vehicle displayed at the 2019 SEMA Show this November in Las Vegas. The Honda Super Tuner Legends Series will be making select stops beginning on Sat., May 18 at the Mattel headquarters in El Segundo, Calif., followed by stops in Denver (Aug. 10), Seattle (Aug. 24) and Santa Clarita, Calif. (Oct. 19).

All three Honda Super Tuner Legends Series stops following the kickoff event in El Segundo will take place at Walmart store parking lots as part of the Hot Wheels Legends Tour. This will give attendees the chance to learn about Honda's history with Hot Wheels, showcase some of the most interesting Honda tuner vehicles in each region, pick up a reusable Honda tote and check out Honda's exclusive Civic Type R that was featured at Honda's 2018 SEMA exhibit. For nearly two decades, Honda and Hot Wheels have partnered to design dozens of Honda Hot Wheels toys, including 20 currently in production. In 2018, Hot Wheels released a series of eight iconic 1:64 scaled die-cast Honda Hot Wheels toys, including the Honda CR-X, '90 EF, Honda Civic Coupe, Honda Civic Si, Honda Monkey Z50, Honda Racer 5, and .

The first-ever Hot Wheels Legends Tour was held in 2018 to commemorate the toy car's 50th anniversary and drew in more than 3,600 cars and 65,000 fans. Hot Wheels aficionados from across the country entered their life-size custom cars in the hope of it being the winning vehicle chosen to be made into a Hot Wheels toy car.
