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!
Do you remember the ’70 AAR ’Cuda we gave away a few months ago in the Show and Tow Dream Giveaway? It seems everybody wants to get their fill of classic Mopar muscle cars.
So, we just launched a new pure-Mopar muscle-car giveaway this month. The grand prize is one of the most talked-about muscle cars of the original muscle-car era.
Ladies and gentlemen, get ready to win a ’69½ Dodge Super Bee.
69½? That’s right. In early calendar-year 1969, Dodge introduced a limited-edition Super Bee, which it called the 440-6 or 440/Six-pack. Today, they are known as “Lift-Off” hood Super Bees. In an effort to reduce body weight for street racers, Dodge did away with the hood hinges and delivered these special big-block Super Bees with fiberglass hoods (with NASCAR-style hood pins) that could easily be lifted off.
Only 1,907 of these A12 Super Bees were produced; this grand prize being the rarest of the lot — a big-block pillared coupe preferred by drag racers for its stiffer body. In fact, production totals point out that this Bright Green Super Bee is 1 of 153 made.
Do you need another reason to fall in love with it?
Well, that’s easy, too as this take-no-prisoners muscle car features a concours frame-off restoration on a 27,000-original-mile body.
This is the first time we at the Dream Giveaway Garage have offered a Dodge Super Bee as a grand-prize. What a honey!
Subaru S209 Dream Giveaway Ends In
341 horsepower • 6-speed manual • Showroom stock to racetrack with no alterations!
That’s the story of the 1-of-209 Subaru S209 that you can bring home as the grand prize in the Subaru S209 Dream Giveaway.
Our friends at Motor Trend spent some time with the limited edition S209 and here’s what they had to say:
“The car delivers a visceral, engaging driving experience that’s ever rarer in this increasingly digitized and electrified world. It demands and rewards your focus, goading you to dig deeper and work harder. If you want this analog thrill before it’s lost to kilowatts and computers, act immediately: Only 209 S209s will ever be built.”
Bradley Iger, an editor for Hot Rod, feels the same way about the Subaru S209:
“We put this Crystal White Pearl beauty through its paces on the twisting tarmac of the San Gabriel Mountains, just northeast of Los Angeles.
“The S209 is the kind of vehicle that makes you want to take the long way home or head back out on the track for just one more session, and that is the hallmark of a truly great performance car.
It took more than 20 years to bring an S car model to American shores, and the S209 proves that good things do, indeed, come to those who wait.”
We think you’ll agree with these auto-magazine editors that this grand prize is one of the most fun vehicles you could ever experience and we want you to be one of the few folks in the entire country to own a S209. They’re sold out at dealers so make your donation today to help out eight great charities. The countdown clock shown here tells you how many days, hours and minutes remain to get your entries.
“I couldn’t believe it! I was elated!”
Those are the words right from the mouth of Peter Holland, this year’s Tesla Dream Giveaway grand-prize winner.
Peter, who was a salesman for one pulp and paper company for his entire adult life, has been retired for 20 years. In his free time he enjoys playing golf, although he admits that at 90-years old, he watches more golf than he plays!
That means Peter had enough free time to check out all the great grand-prizes at Dreamgiveaway.com and got his entries in for the 2020 Tesla Model X, which he eventually won.
Thanks to some quick work from the staff at Dream Giveaway, Peter was able to have his grand-prize just in time for Christmas 2020. Congratulations, Peter.

When you donate to win any of our great grand-prize packages, a portion of your donation benefits Honor Flight of West Central Florida. We recently checked in with this amazing all-American organization to find out how they implemented their veterans’ services despite the difficulties of 2020.
“Last year, Honor Flight of West Central Florida was looking forward to four flights and two Honor Flight at Home programs then the pandemic hit,” a charity spokesperson tells us. “This has been a difficult time for many people and also for non-profit organizations. We had to think of ways to honor veterans and engage our volunteers while doing so in a safe manner. These are some of the ways we were able to accomplish this.
“We collected mail to be handed out to the veterans at Bay Pines VA Community Living Center and the 80 veterans living at Baldomero Lopez State Veterans Nursing Home. A plea was sent out for mail and people responded in a big way. Each veteran was able to receive a large manila envelope filled with notes, cards, drawings and letters from the community letting them know that they are appreciated and not forgotten.
“We were also able to participate in some veteran drive-by birthday celebrations and holiday drive-by parades. With co-host Operation Patriot, we hosted a drive-by thank you during the week of Veterans Day for the Baldomero State Veterans Nursing Home veterans. Veterans were able to come outside and enjoy the many vehicles including the Pasco County Sheriff’s Department, Bam-Bam from Mission BBQ, motorcycles from the Patriot Guard Riders, Rough Riders, Suncoast Region MVPA and an assortment of vehicles from our volunteers and supporters. There was a lot of honking, cheering, smiles and tears. These heroes knew we loved them!
“The last project for 2020 was participation with Wreaths Across America laying wreaths at the Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell. What an honor to be able to do this. We definitely plan to participate again this year.
“We are looking forward to 2021 and plan to resume our flights when it is safe to do so. In the meantime, we will continue to honor and show our gratitude for our veterans.”
