New Mustang Dream Giveaway® Pairs Two Experimental Shelbys
If you’ve ever dreamed of putting two untamed Shelby muscle cars in your corral, then listen up. Dream Giveaway Garage is giving away a genuine Shelby 1965 GT350CR, which we transformed into the world’s only GT350X plus a matching 2017 Shelby GT350X specially built by the the leader in Mustang performance – Steeda Autosports. Are you ready to win the only pair of GT350X experimental muscle cars in the world?
Make no doubt about it. This is the greatest grand-prize package in Mustang Dream Giveaway history and it all kicks off with a Shelby GT350CR, a 670-horsepower 1965 Mustang that looks like it just rolled off a Ford dealer’s new-car lot. Here’s a fact you should know. It took over 2,000 hours to build this show-car Shelby on steroids.
There’s a long waiting list of a year or more to have a Shelby GT350CR built, but don’t you worry. We scored one and put aside for one lucky winner.
So what makes the GT350X so spectacular? Dream Giveaway Garage ordered this one-of-a-kind Shelby with Oxford White paint (It’s the only GT350CR built in this color!) and the most serious before performance components available, including a fuel-injected Ford V-8, a Ford Racing supercharger, an overdrive five-speed transmission and modern suspension, tires and brakes. It also includes one-of-a-kind graphics.
Now that we’ve piqued your interest, get ready to also bring home the world’s only 2017 Shelby GT350X if you’re the winner. Built in cooperation with Steeda Autosports, this fire-breathing, 875-horsepower Mustang is an instant collectible, which has gobs more horsepower than the Dodge Challenger Hellcat, the Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and even the Chevrolet Corvette Z06.
One lucky winner will be flown to Clearwater, Florida, to accept the keys to the only pair of GT350X Shelby Mustangs in the world, plus we’ll pay $45,000 for the taxes.
ON THE ROAD: Grand Prize 2017 Camaro and Corvette
Two 800-horsepower muscle cars! Two separate Dream Giveaways! We know you’re as excited as we are about the Lingenfelter Signature Edition 2017 Corvette Z06 and Camaro ZL1 that we are giving away this year. Here’s where this Super-Corvette and Super-Camaro have been on display so far this year.
Detroit Autorama was a perfect venue to display the Dream Giveaway grand-prize muscle cars. Both the 2017 Camaro ZL1 and Corvette Z06 drew tons of attention, not only for their appearance enhancements, but also of course for the huge 800-horsepower numbers these cars produce.
The Chicago Auto Show was a great location to show off our grand-prize Corvette and Camaro. As with most auto shows, the vehicles on display are not particularly performance cars. The Dream Giveaway Corvette and Camaro made an incredible addition to the show, capturing tons of exciting press and public buzz. It really says something when both of these Dream Giveaway vehicles at the Lingenfelter display were the most photographed cars at the entire show!
The Lingenfelter Collection Spring Charity Open House was the perfect backdrop for Dream Giveaway’s grand-prize 2017 Camaro ZL1 and Corvette Z06. Dream Giveaway staff talked to the guests, which numbered in the thousands, about the grand-prize 2017 Super-Camaro and Super-Corvette, and gave them complimentary chances to enter to win these tire-smoking speed machines and other fabulous Dream Giveaway prizes!
The Dream Giveaway 2017 Camaro ZL1 and Corvette Z06 will attend other major car events throughout the year. Be sure to read Shiftin’ Gears every month so you know where these grand-prize cars will show up next.

Winner Spotlight: Home Improvement Dream Giveaway®
Winning a Dream Giveaway is always big news, and for Californian Carlos De Paz, winning our most recent Home Improvement Dream Giveaway couldn’t have come at a more fortuitous time.
In January, Carlos pointed his computer mouse to www.dreamgiveaway.com and had a lucky feeling come over him that he could win the Home Improvement Dream Giveaway.
“When I got the call, I couldn’t believe it,” De Paz told Dream Giveaway’s Kim Meyers. “I have never won anything in my life. It felt like I won the lottery. My wife and I plan on using The Home Depot gift card to purchase a new refrigerator, stove, dishwasher and dining table. If there is any money leftover after that, we will use it to purchase some outdoor patio furniture. I feel really blessed.”
Your chance to enter to win six amazing Dream Giveaways is going on right now, including a pair of Shelby Mustangs, Corvettes, or Camaros, a Bandit Trans Am personalized by Hollywood legend Burt Reynolds, or a $10,000 gift card to Amazon.com.

Charity Spotlight: National Guard Educational Foundation
The National Guard Educational Foundation, established in 1975, is a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the history and heritage of the National Guard of the United States for present and future generations.
One of the many things NGEF does is manage the National Guard Memorial Museum, which is the first and only national museum dedicated to telling the story of the National Guard. Today the museum covers 381 years of Guard history.
The National Guard Educational Foundation’s goal is to tell the Guard’s story. It relies solely on charitable contributions to carry out its mission. The funding NGEF receives from partnering with DreamGiveaway.com enables it to fulfill its mission by operating the National Guard Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C., and providing college scholarships to children of fallen Guardsmen since the catastrophic terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001. NGEF Director of Development Luke Guthrie says, “Thank you Dream Giveaway for helping us to carry out our mission!”
