Chop Top Challenge Car Donated to Charity

Teams in the 2018 Chop Top Challenge embarked from Chicago, Illinois and headed South for New Orleans, Louisiana. Cars in the Chop Top Challenge have had the tops chopped and windshields cut off of the vehicles making it a crazy drive as they take on their interstate challenge. Along the way, teams were asked to participate in different challenges to earn points. These challenges were not announced to the teams until they left Chicago, making them think on their feet and have some fun! Based on social media, it looks like that is exactly what they did, check some of the action out on Instagram at #choptopchallenge.

This year, the Chop Top creators brothers, Luke and Joe’s, sister and team piloted a 1993 Toyota Previa in the Chop Top Challenge. They donated the car to charity at the end of their stay in New Orleans. Thanks to their generous donation this mini van will be donated to WWNO public radio in New Orleans. Reusable parts will be taken from the vehicle and the rest will be recycled for scrap metal. After a fun rally race this team is also helping out the environment by recycling their car! I heard from Luke about some of his sisters highlights of this years 2018 Chop Top Challenge and here’s what he said: 

“The girls chopped the roof and windshield on Friday evening and then left Chicago Saturday morning. They braved a snow storm right out of Chicago, got Chop Top Challenge tattoos, and made it to New Orleans on Monday night. Tuesday night they led a parade down Bourbon street, complete with a 5 piece brass band playing from inside the vehicle.”

 

We are thrilled with this teams decision to donate their car to charity. When you donate a vehicle to a National Public Radio station of your choice, you actually turn your car into the community programming you love. WWNO will be able to turn the car donation into financial support for the local and national programming you trust and depend on. To learn more about the 2018 Chop Top Challenge visit them at the Chop Top Challenge website or follow them on Instagram at @choptopchallenge.

1977 MG MGB Donated to Michigan Public Radio

This is not the first MG we have received as a donation but it is one of the better models we have seen.  It is the fourth MG donated so far this year and also the oldest aside of a 1952 though that was a kit car and not an original.  This green roadster only has 3,505 miles which is incredible for a 1977.  We do not know much about this MG’s previous life but the donor is from Grand Rapids, Michigan.  Presumably, the car spent most of it’s time there cruising with the top down catching the breeze off Lake Michigan.

The ’77 MG has been donated to Michigan Radio, a part of the NPR news network.  Unfortunately, University of Michigan basketball suffered a tough loss last night in the NCAA tournament.  Hopefully seeing a donation like this one will help ease the pain.
