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.

CM: What do you like most about your job?

DW: The people. I’m a people person, so I like the camaraderie with my co-workers and the relationships that you form with the customers.

CM: What’s the strangest question a customer has asked you?

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

CM: What’s the coolest car you’ve ever owned or worked on?

DW: I helped a buddy with his 2019 Chevy Corvette. That’s a pretty fun car.

CM: Did you get to drive it?

DW: Oh yeah. Absolutely.

CM: Do you have any interesting hobbies? What do you do for fun?

DW: I’m a musician on the side. I play the bass guitar, and I sing in a couple bands.

CM: What’s your dream car?

DW: When I was a kid I had a poster on my wall of a 959 Porsche cabriolet. I’d say that’s as good a dream car as any.
