Metal of Honor '32 Ford on FOX News
Some sponorships are easier to greenlight than others and OPTIMA's sponsorship of the Metal of Honor '32 Ford Roadster was probably one of the easiest calls we've ever made. The concept is fairly straightforward- ask the movers and shakers in the automotive aftermarket if they'd be willing to pitch in to build a car that will ultimately be auctioned off to provide scholarships for the children of slain and disabled soldiers.
The finished product is an amazing car that will surely do a lot of good for some very deserving folks. While we are proud of all our sponsored, cars, trucks, events and anglers, we are truly honored to be a part of this wonderful project. The Roadster will be auctioned off later this month at Barrett-Jackson and it is receiving some really good exposure leading up to the auction. The latest bump came courtesy of FOX News, who profiled the car the other day. You can watch the entire piece here.
