In a shocking turn of events, the custom Nissan Z, affectionately nicknamed “Fast Meat,” has been reported stolen. This unique vehicle, a collaboration between Conagra Brands’ Slim Jim and World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), vanished during its journey from Chicago to Los Angeles for a scheduled video shoot. The last known sighting of the stolen car was in California, according to a recent statement from Conagra Brands.
The police have initiated an investigation to locate “Fast Meat.” Meanwhile, Conagra Brands, the brains behind Slim Jim, have launched a social media campaign #FindFastMeat, rallying Slim Jim enthusiasts, fondly known as the “Long Boi Gang,” to aid in the search for the iconic car.
Ashley Spade, VP & General Manager of Snacks at Conagra Brands, expressed her astonishment at the theft, stating, “We knew we had something special with our custom car but had no idea it would be in such demand that someone would steal it.” She emphasized the company’s cooperation with law enforcement and encouraged the public to report any sightings to the LAPD.
“Fast Meat” is a Nissan Z, a car with a rich history that dates back to the late 1960s with the introduction of the Nissan Fairlady Z, known internationally as the Datsun 240Z. This model played a pivotal role in establishing Nissan’s reputation for producing affordable yet high-performance sports cars. Over the years, the Z series evolved through various iterations, including the 280ZX, 300ZX, and the 350Z, each model contributing to the legacy of Nissan’s sports car lineage.
This particular Nissan Z is distinctive, adorned with a fiery orange and yellow exterior, custom wheels, LED undercarriage lighting, and Slim Jim branding. The interior boasts a custom yellow leather, a Slim Jim holder on the dash, and a unique Slim Jim dispenser in the glovebox, along with whimsical elements like a Long Boi Gang emblem and a hidden 420 reference. It’s a vehicle that stands out, making it an unlikely candidate to go unnoticed.
In light of the theft, the public is urged to remain vigilant. Anyone with information about “Fast Meat’s” whereabouts is encouraged to contact the Los Angeles Police Department. As the search continues, the automotive and wrestling communities alike hope for a swift and safe return of this one-of-a-kind Nissan Z.
