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.

Car Donation Wizard: Connecting Donors to Charities

June 25, 2015
Guest Blogger: Amanda Nevitt

At Car Donation Wizard we bring donors and charities together. Every year we receive thousands of car donations from individuals who want to help their favorite cause. We are experts at helping donors make a big impact by turning their donated cars into cash.

In addition to individual cars, trucks and motorcycles, we receive a fair share of “fleet” vehicles, which is a group of motor vehicles owned by a business rather than an individual. We’ve received shuttle vans for hotels, to big box trucks from corporations. They are an important part of our business and make a big difference for the benefiting charity.

Companies on average keep their fleet vehicles for about five years; most are at the end of their life and not worth much on trade in. What’s a sensible way to extend the life of those vehicles? Donate them! Not only does the donating company receive a tax deduction, but it’s a great way to help build houses, find cures for diseases, protect animals, empower veterans, keep children healthy & safe…(insert your favorite cause here).

Are you ready to donate? Let us help you get the most money for your charity of choice. Click here to get started.

1966 FORD MUSTANG – A Classic American Muscle Car Donation

Wouldn’t this car look great in your driveway? Or top down coasting the highway with you at the wheel? It’s possible. This classic 1966 blue convertible Ford Mustang is up for sale with proceeds benefiting Maine Public Radio (NPR).

A classic American muscle car – it was in the mid 60s the Mustang became associated with true power and performance. This particular car was one of 607,568 ever made. Assembled in Dearborn, Michigan, it had only three previous owners, spending the majority of its life in Florida, then carefully garaged for winters in Maine. The interior and exterior have been restored and engine was rebuilt 10 years ago.

Ford introduced few changes to the ’66 model but what was new included wheels, grille patterns, a new instrument cluster, and color choices. This beauty is Shearwater Blue…a striking combination of light green and light blue.

It’s been said that 1966 is one of the most popular Ford Mustang model years in the history of the car. So whether it’s your first mustang or you’re revisiting an old friend…the chance to make it yours is within reach…and to help a good cause.
