GUNK branded products, the industry leader in serious cleaning and degreasing solutions, and Liquid Wrench branded products, the powerful line of specialty penetrants and lubricants, announced today the grand prize winner of a fully restored 1968 Chevelle SS. Levi Page entered the giveaway in August, when the 2011 Serious Solutions Tour was visiting the 10th Annual Quick Fuel Technology NMCA Muscle Car Nationals in Bowling Green, Kentucky. Page was selected randomly from more than 50,000 entrants. The Chevelle traveled with the Serious Solutions Tour, showcasing its newly restored body and engine, courtesy of GUNK and Liquid Wrench branded cleaners, degreasers, lubricants and penetrants.
“We’re thrilled to present the restored 1968 Chevelle SS to Levi,” said Aaron Martin, director of marketing for RSC Chemical Solutions. “There’s no doubt that this vehicle is one that any auto enthusiast would be pleased to have in his collection. The restoration of the Chevelle was a tribute to the automotive workers in this country who are still proud to get their hands dirty, and the RSC team was happy to return this unique muscle car back to the American icon for which it is known.”
The Serious Solutions Tour and restored Chevelle traversed the country from April through September, with its final stop at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas November 1-4. GUNK and Liquid Wrench product fans followed the Chevelle restoration process and the Serious Solutions Tour at www.SSTour2011.com.
“I entered my name to win the car, but I never really thought I’d actually win,” said Levi Page. “I still can’t believe it’s mine! Looking at the before and after photos, I’m amazed at the work that GUNK and Liquid Wrench team put into it, and I can’t wait to show it off and proudly drive it through the middle of Bowling Green.”
The 2011 Serious Solutions Tour kicked off on April 23 at the Koss Motor Sports Car Show in Gwinnett, Ga., and stopped at more than 30 events across the country, including the Woodward Dream Cruise in Detroit. At each stop, fans learned how to tackle their toughest automotive and DIY challenges using GUNK and Liquid Wrench branded products through on-site demos and product samples.
