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!
Did you hear the amazing news that Ford Motor Company is bringing back the Bronco? The reintroduction is scheduled for 2022.
So to get an early start on Bronco fever, Dream Giveaway is offering you a chance to bring home a classic 1972 Ford Bronco, which has been built to the hilt.
When you enter and win, you’ll bring home an fully restored Ford Bronco that’s ready to tackle today’s toughest adventures, thanks to a fuel-injected Ford 351W V-8 (now displacing 392 cubic inches), a classic Ford three-speed automatic transmission, four-wheel disc brakes, 17-inch wheels and a whole lot of old-school attitude.
If you wanted to build a show-quality classic Ford Bronco of this caliper, be prepared to spend $100,000 … $150,000 … even $200,000 or more, but listen up because we have an easier way to bring home this fantastic Ford Bronco. Enter to win it in the Bronco Dream Giveaway. Plus if you’re the winner, we will pay $8,000 for the taxes.
We like saying that the 44,000-mile 1970 Chevelle SS454 LS6 in the brand-new Chevelle Dream Giveaway is both rare and well done.
That’s because only 1.7% of all Chevelle Sport Coupes produced in 1970 received Chevy’s holy grail 450hp LS6 454ci engine option.
Now add in these verified factory options — an M-22 “Rock Crusher” four-speed, a 4.10 axle and a cowl-induction hood. This year’s grand-prize Chevelle just got a whole lot rarer.
But here’s the kicker. The Chevelle Dream Giveaway’s grand-prize came with a factory bench seat and the “Rock Crusher” four-speed. Have we ever seen this combination before? Nope. Not once until now.
Now let’s talk about the well-done part.
This grand-prize ’70 Chevelle SS454 underwent a frame-off restoration to concours standards. That means the exterior, interior, engine bay and undercarriage are all considered as good or better as you going back in time and buying a Chevelle off of a dealer lot 50 years ago.
We told you last month and it bears repeating. This Chevelle SS454 LS6 grand-prize is a tire-smoking time machine ready to roll out of a new-car showroom, circa 1970.
So if you’re a firm believer in the saying, “There’s no replacement for displacement,” then this 44,000-mile 1970 Chevelle SS454 LS6 is just the car for you.
Head on over to Dreamgiveaway.com and load up on entries today. After all, you do want to win the most powerful muscle car to ever to roll out of Detroit, don’t you?
Seeing is believing.
That’s why both trophy-magnet Corvettes in this year’s Corvette Dream Giveaway are on a summer tour where you can see them up close and personal and even check out the views from behind the two steering wheels.
Shiftin’ Gears caught up with this very special pair of pavement-pounding Vettes at its most recent layover, Bloomington Gold, the granddaddy of all Corvette shows, in Bloomington, Illinois, last month.
“The electric hood on the grand-prize 1961 Corvette was a crowd pleaser,” said Nick Brown, the newest member of the Dream Giveaway team. “Plus both engines sounded phenomenal and were almost guaranteed to bring a donation from those within earshot of them.”
The next stop on Dream Giveaway’s Corvette tour is the Woodward Dream Cruise on August 17, 2019, in the Motor City. The Vettes will be on display at the Lingenfelter Performance Engineering display on Woodward.
Of course, we want the last stop on the Dream Giveaway Corvette’s tour to be your garage. So head on over to DreamGiveaway.com and read more about this once-in-a-lifetime pair of Corvettes.
The more you know about them, the more you’ll want to win them:

When you make a donation to win the world’s greatest prize packages, your donation goes a long way to helping out disadvantaged kids. This month, Shiftin’ Gears checks in with Sponsor charity New Beginning Children’s Homes, where your donations go.
New Beginning Children’s Homes is continuing to grow in new ways, but with the same heart to serve those that need a family to care and connect with them on their journey. In the last five years, New Beginnings has built five homes. Each 2,520 sq. ft. home consists of six bedrooms and three full bathrooms. A Large open family kitchen, dining room and living area make each home a great space for family living.
Outdoor living on the rural campus includes a large recreation area, including playground, basketball court and grass areas for a wide variety of activities plus a pavilion area complete with grill and fire pit area for family fun! Sustainability areas include space for up to six calves, 24 chickens and a seasonal garden.
During these past five years, these homes, which are staffed with full-time house parents, have allowed over 300 children —primarily sibling groups — to be reunited or stay together as they have entered into state foster care at no fault of their own due to some type of abuse, abandonment or neglect. These children have had the opportunity to be loved, heal and grow during their time in these family homes.
New Beginnings is continuing to grow in new ways as some of these homes are being used to provide a family home to young people that are aging out of foster care, other group homes and/or facing homelessness due to abandonment by family or other support systems. Young adults between the ages of 18-23 have a family support system, the opportunity to learn many life skills, education, job and spiritual support that will give them the abilities to succeed now and for their continued journey through life.
