For the past three months now, we’ve been taunting you with mysterious images of a Gas Monkey Custom Hot Rod you could win from Havoline‘s Bad to the Chrome III Metalmorphosis Sweepstakes. We couldn’t show you what was under the cover until you actually got to see the guys build it on a recent episode of Fast N’ Loud.
The man who bought the truck on the episode bought it on behalf of Havoline for the big giveaway, so at the end of that 2-part episode, we were able to yank the cover off and show you what badass custom Havoline had been teasing all along.
Believe it or not, more than 300,000 people entered for a chance to win this beauty! And out of those 300,000+ people, the random selector tool pulled the name Anthony N, from La Crosse, WI. Next, it was time to call the winner! Richard always gets antsy when he makes these calls.
“I think I’m still in shock,” Anthony said in a follow-up e-mail. “My wife still doesn’t believe me.”
Richard invited Anthony and his wife down to Vegas to accept the Truck at the AAPEX show in early November. Turns out, Anthony already had plans! His in-laws had paid for him, his wife and his two little boys to go to Disney World that week. His youngest son, Tanner, just had his sixth open-heart surgery at the young age of 5. The Disney World trip was much needed, and much deserved.
In his place, Anthony sent his brother-in-law, Bryan, down to Vegas to accept the truck on his behalf.
Later this month, Havoline is flying Anthony and his family out to Dallas to check out the garage, meet the monkeys and officially accept their big winnings. Can’t wait to meet you, Anthony! And we’re all rooting for little Tanner!
