Second Wind in BP
The Second Wind was issued in 1977, the last year that redline tires appeared on Hot Wheels cars. Consequently, the Second Wind
can be found with either redlines or blackwalls. The redline version is relatively rare as compared to the blackwall.
Both the redline and blackwall cars came in the '76 Flying Colors blister.
