Gas Monkey Garage is giving away a Hot Rod - need your help

1087861 290
Hi Everyone,

Richard Rawlings of Gas Monkey Garage is giving away a hot rod. We need your help in 2 ways.

1. We need a worthy charity that we can raise money for. We aim to sell T-Shirts in order for people to go into the draw. We want to give the profits to a good charity. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

2. We are going to be documenting the build out and posting the film on you tube - The first video is posted. What would you like to see in the build out - specifically???

Check out the video here:
Gas Monkey Garage Hot Rod video

I am adding a couple of pictures of the 31 etc.


:evil:

A little off the thread topic, but whatever happened to television being entertaining?

Jon,

The process and time involved in this thread is impressive and interesting. A lot of thought is taking place throughout our community and is spreading around the net.

What actions will take place if and hopefully when they apologize?
Is there a chance they come to senses if a bone is thrown to them?

Dutch
I have been wondering about that myself.............

Its simple...Advertising is not allowed in these forums...under the guise of trying to find a charity ( how low can you get) they spammed these boards with advertising. They were asked to apoligize and they chose not to...so now they have to pay the price. Also they are portraying a very bad image of Hotrodders and Hotrodding.

Your right...but the people that you mentioned only care about one thing.....MONEY...... they certainly do not care about others.

Also, mosstrooper -- I'm not ignoring those dodgy pics, I'm just working on something else right now. Thanks again for helping out with research. Personally, I think dodgy needs to get his head examined, possibly even x-rayed.
He can't do that because he does not have one. :D

I remember Honest Charlies.....I bought stuff from him in the early 60's when I was in High School.......It was a good company to do business with. I heard through the grape vine that they were back in business. But now I see they are not back in business...just the right to use that name has been sold to the Cokers....so that means its decieving because it is not really Honest Charlies. I wonder how much more marketing deception is out there? Are we really buying from who we think we are? Where does SEMA fit in to all of this? :mad:
