The Raybestos 1953 Chevrolet pickup truck is home in Minnesota, after being delivered to grand-prize winner Charles Ruder.

Family, friends, customers and members of the Minneapolis Fire Department joined Ruder at an open-house lunch hosted by Brake & Equipment Warehouse in Minneapolis to see “Big Red” and meet legendary car builder Jeff Schwartz. Andrew Miller, director of sales for Brake Parts Inc (BPI), Steve Sontich, customer experience specialist for BPI, and Kristin Grons, marketing manager for BPI, officially presented the keys to Ruder.

“The weather was chilly, but the sun came out and shone on the truck as we presented the classic icon to its new owner,” said Grons. “We congratulate Charles again and thank him for being a loyal Raybestos customer. We know he’ll enjoy cruising around town, showcasing his new ride.”

Ruder was named the grand-prize winner at a special reception held at the BPI booth during AAPEX 2018 in Las Vegas.
