The recipe was simple: Take America’s love affair with Chevy’s original muscle-car—the Chevelle, find the nicest, restored example from the Chevelle’s most iconic year, 1970, and make it the grand-prize for one lucky winner to take home.
Now it’s time for the first Chevelle Dream Giveaway brought to you by Original Parts Group, Inc. to wind up, but there’s still time for you to get in on the tire-squealing action.

First, here’s what the nation’s top automotive journalists had to say about our concours-restored 396ci/350hp 1970 Chevelle SS:

“This is as close as you can get to going back in time and owning a brand-new 1970 SS396 Chevelle.”
Encyclopedia of Muscle Cars author Jim Campisano

“A quick pump of the throttle, and the big-block easily came to life. There was no sputtering, no overly rich condition that burned my eyes while the engine idled. All I noticed was a willingness to give me an enjoyable ride.”
— Randy Bolig with Chevy Hardcore

“If you ever wanted the chance to own a gorgeous Chevelle but didn’t have the funds you needed, now is your chance.”
Chevy Hardcore

“This 1970 Chevelle SS epitomized the heyday of the American muscle car, and this is an unbelievable opportunity. Could you imagine getting that phone call? Think about winning, flying to Florida, and driving your 1970 Chevelle SS home. We know we want to.”
—Kyler Lacey with Chevy Hardcore

That’s right. We’ll fly the winner to Florida to receive the keys to this street-king Chevelle. Of course, you don’t have to drive the grand prize home, but what a great story of a lifetime that will make if that’s you.

So get in now and get in often. Time is running out.

Ask any automobile historian the significance of the three letters G-T-O and he or she will tell you about one very special automobile, which started the entire muscle-car era—the Pontiac GTO. To celebrate, we’re giving away the first GTO in Dream Giveaway history in the new 2018 GTO Dream Giveaway brought to you by Ames Performance.

Originally owned by Pontiac Motor Division as a corporate-use car, the grand-prize 1965 GTO you can enter to win is a genuine, first-generation muscle car with a Tri-Power 389ci engine, a four-speed manual transmission, Positraction and other high-performance options.

Fully restored to concours condition and awarded the Pontiac-Oakland Club International Points-judged Gold award, you’ll want to get your tickets early and often for this power-packed grand prize.
Now let’s test your GTO knowledge:

1. Name the Pontiac executive who took a pre-production GTO home and his friends asked to borrow it so many times that he knew it would be an instant success?
2. What two famous 1960s hit sit-coms featured GTOs on a regular basis?
3. What exotic vehicle was the Pontiac GTO named after?
4. What was the GTO’s nickname?
5. What famous song was named after the GTO and who sang it?

And here are the answers:
1. John Z. DeLorean, then chief engineer of Pontiac and later its general manager.
2. You probably guessed “The Monkees,” and you’re right. The second answer is a tad bit harder so congratulate yourself if you remembered that “I Dream of Jeannie” featured a GTO (as Major Anthony Nelson’s daily driver.)
3. The Ferrari 250 GTO.
4. Another easy one as the GTO had many nicknames; the most famous being “The Great One,” but also “The Tiger,” “The Humbler,” and, of course, “The Goat!”
5. “G.T.O.” by Little Ronnie and the Daytonas.


Now America’s original muscle car can come home with you.

  Charity Spotlight: New Beginning Children’s Homes

When you donate to win a Dream Giveaway grand-prize, you can feel good knowing that you are helping our Sponsor charity New Beginning Children’s Homes foster orphan children. We asked the organization’s president Ken Ferguson to tell the story of one child who is helped by your support.
Often times, we spend heavy emphasis, focusing on the material aspects in life. We worry about the trivial roads that life promotes. What am I having for dinner? Why is traffic so backed up today? I cannot wait for 5 o’clock so I can get off work. It is even less often that we consider the situations that surround the individuals we encounter each day. Does the man in the car next to us have a job to support his family? Does the woman in the drive-through window have enough money to purchase her groceries for the week? Do the children around me each day feel the same love that I afford to my own?

Here is the story of one child who has not been afforded the opportunity to focus on the trivial aspects of her life. You see, Sarah’s life has been filled with heartbreak, abuse, and neglect. Sarah never got to worry about being the popular girl in school. She never focused on sleep-overs with friends, or ice cream for dessert. Sarah worried about a safe home, three meals per day, and finding a family that would love her.

We were fortunate to receive Sarah into one our homes in 2014. Sarah learned a lot in her two years with New Beginnings. She learned that regardless of what she did, her house parents would never leave her. She learned that she would never go to bed hungry again, nor would she ever have to worry about finding the love she craved in a family. We were fortunate to stand alongside of Sarah as she rode the rollercoaster that her life had become. We stood next to her as she waited by the phone each week, hoping her biological mother would call. We held Sarah as she cried, when her family didn’t show for their weekly visitation. We celebrated her successes in school as she made honor roll, and sang in the choir. Unfortunately, we also stood next to Sarah as she sat in the courtroom the following year, as the judge terminated her biological family’s parental rights.

Sarah taught us a lot in turn. She reminded us that love was possible, when hope seemed so far from reach. Sarah continually reminded us of our mission to serve at all costs, as we fought for the best outcome in her case. Ultimately, we were able to celebrate with Sarah when she was notified that a distant relative would be adopting her. We comforted her fears as she packed her bags, to move across country. She was finally getting the family she always dreamed about. We said goodbye to Sarah in early 2016.

Fast forward to mid-2017, we received word that Sarah’s distant relative was dying from cancer and could no longer care for her. In turn, Sarah would be returning to the Arkansas State Foster Care system. In an instant, the family she desired was becoming a distant memory. Again, Sarah was faced with the fear of the unknown for her future. During the processing of her transfer paperwork, Sarah made one request, “Can I please go back to New Beginnings? I know they love me there.”

The thousand miles back to Arkansas, will be the last time Sarah will experience the fear of loneliness again. My friends, Sarah might be broken, but she is far from shattered. Sarah represents the symbol of strength that comes behind a child determined to find a family. This search will continue to drive her desire for happiness and stability. New Beginnings welcomed Sarah back with open arms. Sarah returned to the very home she once lived, within New Beginnings. Sarah was welcomed into the loving arms of the same house parents that embarked on the initial journey with her.

While her story is far from over, we can say with the utmost confidence, Sarah will never search for acceptance or stability again. Sarah returned to the family she always wanted. New Beginning will remain committed to helping to REWRITE SARAH’S FUTURE once again.

As you navigate through your daily lives, we encourage you to take the time to consider the lives of those you are surrounded by each day. Remember that Sarah represents only one of thousands of children in state foster care seeking hope, love, and a family.

Whether 10 or 1,000 miles stand before you, remember that these miles represent the end of a chapter, and the opportunity to influence the closing of another child’s book.

Visit www.dreamgiveaway.com today and make a donation to win your favorite car or other grand-prize package and your donation will help New Beginning Children’s Homes give foster children a safe, family atmosphere where they can heal, grow, and be loved. It’s a win-win situation we can all be proud of. To learn more, visit www.newbeginningchildrenshomes.org.
