Every month, Dream Giveaway Garage brings you a behind-the-scenes look at Dream Giveaway® grand-prizes, the charities that benefit from your donation, the companies that help us build the grand-prize cars, and the lucky winners!

  New Giveaway: Chevelle Dream Giveaway®

A 454ci engine, a 4-speed and 4.10 gears.

That’s the stuff muscle car dreams are made of. So to kick off our newest Dream Giveaway, which launches this month, we are giving you a chance to score an extremely low-mile, concours-restored 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS454 with the rare 450hp LS6 engine.

Holy grail?

More like holy moly holy grail.

This Chevelle SS454 is a tire-smoking time machine ready to roll out of a new-car showroom, circa 1970.

From its show-quality Desert Sand exterior paint to an extremely rare original and never-restored Saddle-colored bench-seat interior; and even the spot-on sound of a solid door thud, this legendary 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle SS454 is a throwback to the days when the slogan, “There’s no replacement for displacement,” ruled the street.

And that’s not all. This cherry Chevelle SS454 has travelled only 44,000 miles since it was brand new.

If you’ve followed our Chevelle Dream Giveaway, you already know that we’ve handed over the keys to two 1970 Chevelle SS sport coupes. This new Chevelle Dream Giveaway is our best yet.

So are you ready to enter and win the most powerful muscle car to ever to roll out of Detroit?

Let’s face it. It’s easy to know the smile factor of a muscle car that’s been around for generations. You don’t need anybody’s 101 on how a Mustang drives, or how a Camaro feels or how a Corvette handles.

But a Tesla Model S P100D? That’s another story.

If you’re not yet a Tesla Model S P100D fan, it’s likely because you’ve never driven one. That’s why we would, if we could, give each and every one of you a drive in this grand-prize Tesla. Just one ride is all it takes to make you a true believer.

So here’s a question for you.

What will you enjoy the most about making this new Tesla Model S P100D your daily driver?

If you’re a gearhead like us, we know you’ll fall in love with this grand-prize Tesla’s gas pedal — oops, we should get used to calling it an accelerator pedal! Not only does it put you a tap away from 920 lb-ft of torque, you’ll never have to fill up with go-go juice ever again.

But fulfilling your basic instincts to go fast and save money is just one of this grand-prize Tesla’s strengths.

It has so many industry best-ofs that we can’t name them all here —retractable door handles, eight cameras providing 360-degree view, top-grade leather interior, audiophile-grade Harmon Kardon sound system, Apple Car Play and a cabin quitter than a public library. Plus it is the only vehicle ever to score a perfect score from the tough-as-nails reviewers at Consumer Reports.

Remember, we are giving away a well optioned, $140,000 Tesla five-passenger Model S P100D to one lucky Dream Giveaway supporter, but the clock is ticking and you only have a few days left to enter.

So head on over to DreamGiveaway.com and stock up on Tesla Dream Giveaway entries before time runs out. Remember, if you’re the winner, we will also cover the taxes.

  Winner Spotlight: Home Improvement Dream Giveaway®

One of the great strategies we see winners rely upon is to pick up some entries for one of our smaller giveaways at the same time they’re donating to win the bigger prize packages like Corvettes or Mustangs.

That’s how Steve Smith of Florida found himself on the receiving end of the winner call in our recent Home Improvement Dream Giveaway. Steve — a car guy, of course — wanted to win two Corvettes. He made sure to up his generous donation with some entries into the $10,000 gift card to The Home Depot.

“The surprise was awesome,” Steve tells Shiftin’ Gears. “I never knew anyone who had won before. My son and I had just left Home Depot when you called. As we were walking into the store, I saw a penny. I picked it up and told my son, ‘This is our lucky day!’ So sure enough, it was our lucky day.”

Steve entered the Dream Giveaway sweepstakes to help the National Guard Educational Foundation as his son is a marketing executive for the Indiana Army National Guard.

Steve and his family are now familiar, and somewhat famous, faces at their local Home Depot when they drop in and load up on great stuff for their home.

You can be the next big Dream Giveaway winner.

  Partner Spotlight: American Car Craft

Then you start noticing your car around town. Before you know it, you start seeing your exact car everywhere. How can there be so many of your exact car everywhere you go?

Did you know there are estimated to be over 1 billion cars traveling the streets across the world today? Each manufacturer cranks out thousands upon thousands of vehicles. Each has its own unique varieties to choose from but still, those varieties are still just clones. With so many of the same cars and trucks on the road, how do YOU stand out?

At American Car Craft there still exists the idea of craftsmanship and creating premium automotive parts. Each custom car accessory is designed to perfectly fit onto a stock vehicle. Using precision laser technology to cut only the highest quality 304 stainless steel or carbon fiber, their craftsmen expertly create each part just for you.

If you’re looking to go for a specific color, many of the American Car Craft products come with dozens of color trim options. Want a completely custom color for your part? Good news, each 304 stainless steel part can be customized with a brushed finish preparing it for paint. Simply take your part to your favorite custom paint shop or hydro-dip specialist and you will truly have a one of a kind piece for your car or truck.

All American Car Craft parts are custom built in the United States.

  Charity Spotlight: Smile Network International

When you enter a Dream Giveaway with your generous donation, a portion of the proceeds benefit Smile Network International—a humanitarian organization that provides life-altering reconstructive surgeries and related healthcare services to impoverished children and young adults born with cleft lips and palates around the world.

We checked in with the Smile Network International team and asked them how your generous donation dollars are put to good use. Here’s what they had to say.

“In as little as 45 minutes and $500, we can provide a free life-changing surgery to a child born with a cleft lip or cleft palate,” Smile Network said. “Since its inception in May 2003, we have developed 24 surgical sites in 11 countries on five continents. We have completed more than 90 missions and operated on 4,000 children in Peru, Mexico, Guatemala, Kenya, Tanzania, Armenia, Ecuador, Uganda, India, Vietnam and Haiti.”

Make no doubt about it. Smile Network improves the quality of life for the poorest children in the world whose needs would otherwise go unaddressed.

“Without the support of our donors like Dream Giveaway, we could not do what we do and change these children’s lives.”

Visit www.dreamgiveaway.com today and make a donation to enter to win some amazing prize packages. When you do so, you’ll be helping Smile Network International bring smiles to the faces of misfortunate children in the world’s poorest countries.
