IDEAL to give away ULTIMATE MUSCLE CAR at the 2006 electric west show in SYCAMORE, IL, February 7, 2006 - Attendees typically leave tradeshows with a carload of sales materials and business cards. But one lucky visitor to the Electric West Show, to be held March 1-3, 2006 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, will be driving home in a meticulously restored 1969 Dodge Charger, courtesy of IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC. and its "Twice The Muscle, Twice The Power" sweepstakes.
Featuring a custom paint job, five-spoke chrome American Racing™ wheels, and a big block 425HP 440 engine, this ultimate muscle car will be given away at the IDEAL booth (#401) on the second day of the show at 2:00 p.m.
Five semi-finalists, all of whom found winning cards inside bags of IDEAL Twister™, Wing-Nut™ or Buchanan B-CAP™ wire connectors, are being flown in by IDEAL for the sweepstakes. Before a huge crowd of onlookers, each will be given one of five keys to start the engine. Whoever holds the key that turns the engine over drives the car home.
In addition to the trip for two to Las Vegas, all five semi-finalists received an XM™ satellite radio with one-year service subscription.
Getz's Hot Rod Innovations in Hampshire, Illinois carried out the restoration work on the 1969 Charger, adding IDEAL's signature colors in a custom paint job, along with coil-over shock suspension, a 727 Chrysler™ TorqueFlite™ transmission, and high-performance disc brakes, among many other performance features that give the car its original classic look and road feel.
Last year, Daniel Mesa, an electrician from Las Vegas, Nevada, rode off from the Electric West Show the winner of a custom-built motorcycle from Orange County Choppers™ in the IDEAL "Born to Be Wired" Sweepstakes.
