WD-40 Charity Car Raises $115K

January 30, 2013


An auction for this WD-40/SEMA Cares Foose charity car raised $115,000.
When the WD-40/SEMA Cares Foose charity vehicle rolled off the auction block at the Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Auction on Jan. 20 in Scottsdale, AZ, it had raised big money for charity—$115,000, to be exact.

Chip Foose, the legendary hot rod designer and TV star who designed the custom 2012 Dodge Challenger SRT8, was on-hand at the auction to see the winning bid come in from Khaled bin Alwaleed bin Talal Alsaud of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

This is the third consecutive year WD-40 Company has partnered with SEMA Cares, the charity arm of the Specialty Equipment Market Association, to build a custom vehicle. The WD-40/SEMA Cares Camaro and WD-40/SEMA Cares Mustang also raised money for the same two SEMA Cares charities—Childhelp and The Victory Junction Gang Camps.

The three vehicles have raised more than $400,000 for these charities.
