Counterman’s “Guess the Car” contest challenges our readers to solve an automotive riddle, for a chance to win $100. And each month, we receive hundreds of responses from aftermarket professionals trying to guess the model of the vehicle depicted.
The correct answer for the April/May contest is the Corvette Stingray. The winner is Dana Woollen, store manager at A Street Auto Parts in Lincoln, Nebraska.
Now, let’s get to know the “Guess the Car” champion.
CM: How long have you been working in the auto parts business?
DW: Off and on for probably 18 years. I’ve always been with NAPA Auto Parts, but at different locations.

DW: Well, I asked a customer how many lug holes a rotor had, and he asked me what I meant by that.
