Underhood: Remanufacturing And The EV-Battery Challenge
Gabriel and RTM’s “Truck Tech” show are hosting this sweepstakes to give away a completely custom retro El Camino truck.
Gabriel (Ride Control, LLC) is offering a sweepstakes in honor of the 50th anniversary of the HiJackers brand. The company is 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” show 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 6L LS that rides on Gabriel’s HiJacker shocks.
Gabriel introduced HiJackers 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 ’60s and early ’70s, according to the company. 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 two- and four-wheel-drive pickups, sport trucks and SUVs.
Viewers have until the end of August to enter the 2017 sweepstakes. To enter for a chance to win, see the official rules at gabriel.com.
