For 25 years, Dodge rolled out the two-seat Viper as an uncompromising rendition of the ultimate American sports car. Now, there’s less than 25 days left for you to enter a final-edition Viper in the 2018 Viper Dream Giveaway driven by Kumho Tire.

“The most important thing to know about this grand-prize Viper is that it is fully street legal,” says Dream Giveaway Chief Gearhead Mark Breiner. “Some folks recall the race-only Viper of the early 1990s, but today’s Dodge Viper is as much a super-cool soccer mom’s daily driver as it is a weekend warrior.”

And if you’re the type to sock a future collectible away in your garage as a six-speed savings account, this grand-prize Viper has great investment potential. “There were only 28 of these final-edition Vipers produced,” Breiner says. That adds up to a super-rare ride that you can enjoy today and cash in on down the road.”

Time is running out for you to claim victory of the most vicious Viper ever produced.

 

  Brand New: Off-Road Adventure Dream Giveaway®

Desert and dunes, the rocks and rivers or the starting line of the world-famous Baja 1000? Let’s face it. There are some places where you just shouldn’t take your old-school muscle car. That’s why we’ve put aside a brand-new Polaris XP 1000 for you if you’re the winner of the Off-Road Adventure Dream Giveaway.

For more than 30-years, Polaris has been building the best off-road vehicles on earth. Vehicles that perform better, work harder, ride smoother, and deliver the ultimate riding experience.

We picked this grand-prize Polaris XP 1000 with you in mind. Enter and win, and you’ll bring home today’s most popular two-seater UTV.

Just imagine yourself behind the wheel of this outrageous off-road performance machine. Backyard. Back woods. Back country. You name it. The Polaris RZR XP 1000 is the benchmark for extreme performance, delivering power, suspension and utility for any terrain.

  Winner Spotlight: Shopping Spree Dream Giveaway®

Call it great timing. With August being the traditional time of the year for back to school preparation, bringing home $10,000 to Amazon.com is a win that anybody would be proud of.

Last month, Dream Giveaway Garage called Stevie Taylor of Alabama and congratulated him for holding the lucky winning ticket in the Shopping Spree Dream Giveaway. “When I first got the call, I couldn’t believe it was real,” he said. “When it finally sunk in that I had won, I was in shock. I just couldn’t stop smiling.”

With some good planning, Stevie already has the $10,000 big-win courtesy of Dream Giveaway mapped out. He plans on using his prize winnings to outfit his 2010 Camaro SS with a serious audiophile-grade in-cabin audio system. He says he will save the remaining money to spend at Christmas.

Stevie’s strategy has worked for other Dream Giveaway winners and he wants to share it with you. He increased his generous donation and spread it across all the active giveaways, essentially positioning himself “in it to win it” in all giveaways.

Are you next? We’re ready to fly you to Clearwater, Florida, too if you have the lucky, winning ticket to a Dream Giveaway valued at $50K or more. There are lots of great prize packages to choose from, including two easy-to-drive Corvettes, an all-electric performance Tesla, a race-ready Viper, two Mustang Bullitts, a Hellcat-powered Ram truck, the ultimate toolkit or a classic, four-speed Chevelle.

  Partner Spotlight: Kumho Tire

Ultra high performance isn’t just for racers. When you put this classification of tires on your personal vehicle, you bring performance and safety with you wherever you go. That’s why Dream Giveaway Garage has partnered with Kumho Tire to tell you about a brand-new tire that can dramatically improve confidence, handling, and control.

For more than 50 years Kumho Tire has been bringing pioneering technology, design and experience to every tire that they produce. Along with their success and partnerships in motorsports around the world, Kumho Tire has been able to create a new Ultra-High Performance All-Season tire, the Kumho Ecsta PA51.

The Kumho Ecsta PA51 is tailored to all drivers who want the handling of an ultra-high performance tire without compromising all-season capability. Drivers can now also enjoy smooth handling and superb grip season after season from a performance focused tire.

Benefits & Technology
 

  • Confidence-instilling traction comes from its asymmetrical tread-design and full-depth sipes that are able to give superb traction in the snow or rain.
  • A strong central rib and rigid outside shoulder give exceptional traction and stability, even in tight curves and corners.
  • A balanced and wide footprint provides even contact with the road allowing for longer tread life.
    Variable pitch tread design lowers road harmonics for a quieter, more comfortable ride; especially at high speeds.
  • Circumferential and lateral grooves along with full-depth sipes help to expel water and snow quickly to help improve control, even in inclement weather.

The ECSTA PA51 is backed by a 45,000 mileage limited tread wear warranty and road hazard warranty. The tire is now available in 43 sizes ranging from 16” to 20”, with 12 additional sizes launching later this year.

As a Shiftin’ Gears subscriber, through 10/31/18, Kumho Tire is offering a $70 rebate on a set of four (4) qualifying Kumho Ecsta PA51 tires from any authorized participating Kumho dealer. You will receive a $70 Visa® Prepaid gift card that can be used anywhere a Visa® card can be used.

  Charity Spotlight: Detroit Rescue Mission

When you enter a Dream Giveaway with your generous donation, a portion of the proceeds benefit Detroit Rescue Mission —a Motor City-based organization committed to rebuilding the Detroit area. This month in Shiftin’ Gears, we asked this non-profit—one of the largest providers in the fight against homelessness and substance abuse in the country—to share the amazing story of two of its youth volunteers.

“It is not often that you find teens investing countless hours in making items to give homeless women and topping it up with teaching them some valuable skills,” says the organization.

That’s precisely what two metro Detroit sisters, 15-year-old Mackenzie, a sophomore at Detroit Country Day, and 13-year-old Kate, an 8th grader at Royal Oak Middle Schools, have been doing since 2016 under the auspices of their nonprofit MK Blanket Wraps.

Mackenzie and Kate have been handing out their handmade blankets and scarves as well as teaching women at Detroit Rescue Mission Ministries’ G3 female homeless shelter how to sew, using six brand new Brother CS6000i sewing machines they purchased and donated to the 1909-founded multi-program organization.

“Kate and I have seen that the women are dedicated to making their projects look good and are very engaged in the class,” said Mackenzie, adding that “sewing takes patience, creativity and problem-solving skills.”

Interestingly, the students vary in educational attainment, with one studying for her master’s degree in IT and another in the 7th grade, but they all find the sewing skills they are acquiring very useful both in the cost-saving sense of DIY, and as part of a skill set that could enhance their prospects of landing well-paying jobs.

Now, the two sisters who recently won the 2018 Soroptimist Violet Richardson Award are planning “a graduation night to celebrate the sewing achievements” of their students who will be presented with certificates.
