CarParts.com, a leading online automotive aftermarket retailer, is proud to announce its participation in Project American Heroes (PAH), a not-for-profit organization that rebuilds classic American muscle cars for auction. All net proceeds from auction benefit The Armed Forces Foundation, which offers direct financial assistance and uplifting support to our men and women in uniform.
Last year, PAH rebuilt a 1957 Chevrolet Convertible. It was auctioned at the Barrett-Jackson Auction in Palm Beach Florida and netted a $130,000.00 donation to the Armed Forces Foundation. Project American Heroes 2008 is rebuilding an icon of American auto manufacturing, the 1969 Chevy Camaro RS/SS.
PAH.s expert builders, with the help of CarParts.com and other providers, have spared no effort or expense in restoring this classic American muscle car. Every inch of the car will be massaged and reworked using race-quality components for a state-of-the-art rebuild surpassing any car lover.s dreams.
"We.re very excited and proud to be a part of Project American Heroes 2008," said Steve Chiagouris, General Manager of CarParts.com. "We.re pleased to be able to contribute in such a direct way to a rebuild of a classic American car for the benefit of our fighting men and women."
To help bring this year.s restored classic fully into the 21st Century, CarParts.com is supplying a JVC multi-media system featuring a High Definition (HD) Radio Tuner Box with Bluetooth Phone/Audio Adaptor, In-Dash 7" DVD Player and speaker system.
The fully restored 1969 Camaro will debut August 9th at the Super Chevy Show at Route 66 Raceway in Joliet, Illinois.
