Raffle Winner

Special Thanks to Rob Hill and his Santa Ynez Valley High School Auto Shop students for performing a complete restoration on the trailer that the Wheels ‘N’ Windmills Car Show has been using to transport and display the V8 Engine and Transmission. This trailer is taken to venues up and down the West Coast to display the engine and transmission and to sell raffle tickets. All of this year’s proceeds from the engine/transmission raffle will be donated to the Santa Ynez Valley High School to support the auto shop program and its students. The trailer was completely disassembled, sand blasted, the frame was structurally upgraded. Wiring repaired and updated, and a complete custom paint job was applied in the schools new paint booth. Funds from last year’s raffle helped pay for the new paint booth.


Very special thanks to Tim Broberg (owner of Fastripe) for adding the great pinstriping to the trailer cover.
