A one-of-a-kind prize supported by one-of-a-kind shocks
Farmington Hills, MI - Gabriel® (Ride Control, LLC), the inventor and industry leader in automotive ride control technology, announces they are offering a sweepstakes in honor of the 50th anniversary of the HiJackers® brand. They are partnering with RTM, the producers of the PowerNation automotive television program, to give away a custom 1967 El Camino truck.
“2017 is a big year for us to celebrate,” says Jonathon Gore, Director of Marketing at Gabriel, “The company celebrates two big milestones, 50 years for HiJackers and 110 years for Gabriel. It was a natural fit to commemorate this year in a giveaway of an iconic vehicle that embodies a hard working attitude combined with a wild streak of power and performance.”
Gabriel and RTM’s Truck Tech shop are hosting this sweepstakes to give away a completely custom retro El Camino truck built by the Truck Tech guys, unavailable anywhere else. The truck will feature a 6-liter LS that rides on Gabriel’s HiJacker shocks.
Gabriel introduced HiJackers, the first air-adjustable shock absorbers, in 1967 as a solution to restore balance to vehicles carrying or hauling heavy loads. However, they also became popular with the muscle car and street racing crowd in the late ‘60’s and early ‘70’s. The El Camino project brings both aspects of the HiJackers 50-year history together in one vehicle.
Jeremy Bumpus and Lawrence “LT” Tolman, co-hosts of PowerNation TV’s Truck Tech show, will be building the one-of-a-kind HiJackers El Camino. The program shows viewers how to restore, modify, customize, and paint classic and late model 2- and 4-wheel drive pickups, sport trucks, and SUVs.
This sweepstakes is an opportunity for Gabriel to partner with PowerNation and engage with their viewers. The winner will experience all the benefits of HiJackers shocks along with a one-of-a-kind vehicle. Viewers have until the end of August to enter the 2017 sweepstakes.
