Matthew Kaiser of Tucson, Arizona was the lucky winner of the ’68 Firebird here at the 13th Southwest Nationals. A power plant operator by day and car enthusiast on the weekends, Kaiser and his wife Margarett went wild when Matthew’s key started the bright yellow bird. “This is the first time I’ve ever won anything he said.”
The Firebird went to a true car enthusiast. Kaiser drives his 1970 Chevy C-10 pickup to work every day and also has a ’39 Ford sedan as well as a ’64 Karmann Ghia convertible. He plans to drive as well as show off his new ‘Bird. He qualified as a finalist to win the car at the 1st Spring Nationals here in March. Ironically, he drew key #9 during the giveaway ceremony. His son Benjamin just turned nine years old on November 6th and instead of asking for presents, Benjamin went out on a fundraising mission to raise money for juvenile diabetes as a friend of his suffers from that ailment.
The ’68 ‘Bird is a real beauty featuring Goodguy Yellow paint , a potent 400 c.i. Chevy small block with a 4 speed manual transmission and an all original black interior, Intro Rally five-spokes (18” and 20”) wrapped in BF Goodrich G Force KDW tires and accessories by Fesler Built.
A special thank you to KOOL 94.5FM and KPHO CBS 5 here in Phoenix who partnered with Goodguys on this special giveaway car!
