Solution Finish

Well folks we are just about wrapped up with giveaway week. Today’s giveaway is something to bring the life back to the black trim on your car. This kit will bring the trim that turned grey back to a nice shiny black.

Solution Finish

This kit from Solution Finish has everything you need to restore that dingy black trim on your car. The 1oz bottle is enough to do 3 cars.

How to play
So far we have talked about 1st cars, car stories, and spy cars. Today post your favorite all time car. It doesn’t have to be one you have owned. It can be any car. Tell us all about the car, and why you love it. It is that simple!

Giveaway

We are one day closer to the weekend! That means we are one day closer to the end of giveaway week 🙁 I hope that you are all enjoying this week. I know that I am having a BLAST.

Okay, yesterday’s giveaway was a bust. It confirmed my suspension that most folks don’t like to call and talk of the phone. It’s okay, I will hang on to the wrench rack for another time. I will also leave the hotline up for anyone that does like to call in questions.

Let’s get to Thursday’s giveaway.

Giveaway

This set is probably my favorite. A Snap-on shirt, a freaking awesome magnetic tray, a VW water bottle, and the ultra rare Humble Mechanic sticker.

Here is how to play:

  • Post a comment in the comments section
  • Tell me what feature you would add to your car if it was a spy car (Think James Bond or Archer)
  • Give some details about what it would do
  • Make sure you put a good email address in when you comment(only I see that btw)
  • I am going to let my wife pick her favorite.

That’s all you gotta do.

Also don’t forget to enter the GRAND PRIZE giveaway for $150 worth of Tool Lodge tool organizer. That giveaway is on Facebook. For those of you not on FB, just contact me and I will help you enter. I don’t love doing FB giveaways, but it was the easiest way to do it.

Here is how to play today. Use the call line and call in a question. You can use the box on the right side of the site, or use this link to Send me a voice message. Call in and ask me a question about cars, tools, car repair, DIY, finding a good mechanic, and so on. I will randomly pick a winner from the callers.

Good luck! Be sure to enter for the grand prize, and stay tuned for Thursday and Friday’s giveaways.

Snap on giveaway

Yesterday’s giveaway was HUGE! I have emailed the winner and will announce who it is, when I hear back.

I have got a few emails asking why I am doing these giveaways. There are a bunch of reasons. First, I like giving things away. I think it is fun. Working with folks and their cars can be tough. So doing ultra fun giveaway breaks that up. It is also a good to get to know you all. That is why I am asking you to post things. I have such sentimental attachment to my first car. So I want to hear about your first car. It is things like that that make all the work I do worth it.

Okay, enough about all that. Let’s get to Tuesday’s giveaway!

Snap on giveaway

 Today we more Snap-on goodies! This is a Snap-on T shirt, socks, a drink koozie, and a VW key chain. As you can tell, I am a Snap-on fan 😉

HOW TO WIN
Yesterday I asked what your first car was. Today, post your funniest car related story(keep it clean kids 😉 ) in the comments section. Here is my funny car story

When I worked at Carmax, I would drive the toll road everyday. There was a spot on the toll road my radar detector would always go off. Same spot every day. The spot was about 500ft from my exit.

One morning my girlfriend (wife now) and I were heading to breakfast. We were heading down the stretch of tollway I drove everyday. My radar detector went off. She told me to slow down. I said, “don’t worry, this thing always goes off here”. About 2 seconds after I said that, I seen the blue lights flashing. I got pulled for going about 10 over the speed limit.

I pretty much got what was coming. Okay, post your funniest car related story in the comments. Just like yesterday, I will use a random number generator to pick a winner.
