Petrol heads rejoice!

On Thursday night New Zealand is staging the first leg of the annual "Hot Wheels Legends Tour" - a global search for the best custom car in the eyes of toymaker Mattell.

The prize for the global winner?

Their car will be immortalised in toy form and sold to children and collectors around the world.

Among those entered in the virtual competition, which will be streamed from 6pm, is Pukekohe builder and proud Mazda owner Steve Ellicott.

He spoke to Corin Dann.
