Classic Free Ride is Back!

Classic Free Ride is Back!

By @jpatmiller. CREATED Jan 27, 2014

620 WTMJ is thrilled to partner with NuMale Medical Center to bring back Classic Free Ride for 2014!  Last year's Ford Thunderbird giveaway was incredible and this year promises to be bigger and better than ever.  Again this year we're partnering with Valenti Classics and they have something special in mind.  Instead of just a restoration, Valenti is going all the way with a "resto-mod" of a 1969 Ford Mustang Fastback.  One lucky winner will drive off in the Valenti Mustang that will look as good as it did when it rolled off the assembly line BUT it will be loaded with all of today's technology to make it drive like a brand new muscle car.  (Can you say double the horsepower of the original??)

Right now, the car looks like a skeleton. Valenti has stripped the car down to the bare metal and they're going to do a 9 month restoration in just 3 months.  Luckily, we'll be able to follow along with the restoration here in the Classic Free Ride Garage.  Bookmark the page and you'll get the blow by blow on this historic rebuild.

The '69 Valenti Mustang will roll out of the garage on Monday May 5th live on the Morning Blend on TODAY'S TMJ4.  TODAY'S TMJ4 will also double your chances to win the car with their own way to win in July.  Stay tuned for more as we move forward.

For now, sit back, relax and enjoy the restoration of the Classic Free Ride!
