Through a partnership with the Alex Xydias Center for Automotive Arts, WD-40 and Chip Foose Design will build a a 2013 Ford F-150 pickup that will be raffled off to beneit three SEMA Cares charities. The Foose-inspired vehicle, dubbed the WD-40/SEMA Cares Foose Ford F-150 will be built at the SEMA Garage in Diamond Bar, California. “I'm so grateful for the opportunity to work with organizations like WD-40 Co. and SEMA Cares, who continue to support the automotive trade,” said Foose, president and CEO of Foose Design. “This year, we’ll have even more hands on deck to help out with the build, and there’ll be plenty of WD-40 brand products used throughout that process.”
With raffle tickets only costing $50 starting November 1, 2013, owning a Foose-inspired truck is now more accessible than ever to all automotive enthusiasts. Proceeds from the raffled vehicle will benefit three SEMA Cares charities: the SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund, Childhelp and Victory Junction.
“Off-roaders, truck enthusiasts and aftermarket companies have used our products for decades, for preventing mud from sticking to displacing moisture from engines,” said Tim Lesmeister, vice president of marketing for WD-40 Co. “Now, we have the next generation of automotive professionals and enthusiasts getting excited about working on a vehicle that will support a great cause, and that’s something we’re proud to be a part of.”
This is the sixth vehicle WD-40 Co. and SEMA Cares have teamed up to build and the fourth vehicle Chip Foose has designed with them. To date, WD-40/SEMA Cares vehicles have raised more than $575,000 for SEMA Cares charities.
