It was Rick’s idea. Paint some new 97 carburetors in red, white and blue – with all polished/chrome parts – to celebrate 4th July with our American friends. We’ve done Black and Chevy Orange before, but when these babies turned up from our buddies at The Paintbox in three House of Color Pearl shades, we just about exploded with excitement. Out came the flag and, well, here’s the result.
Our next idea is a little more serious. How about we auction these carbs through our Facebook Page and give all the money to a US Veteran’s Charity? Sounds good? Simply click onto our Facebook Page www.facebook.com/stromberg97 on 4th July and add a comment to make a bid. Auction starts now. Ends midnight 11th July. They start at $100 – inc shipping. And there is no reserve. Winner takes all. Dig deep guys. It’s a worthy cause.
All the money will go to Fisher House Foundation, for their network of comfort homes built at major military and VA medical centers. Fisher Houses enable family members to be close to a loved one during hospitalization for a combat injury, illness or disease. They’ve helped over 19,000 military families, saving them over $200,000,000 since 1990. No wonder they have an A+ rating from the American Institute of Philanthropy.

One more thing. We’ve never hidden the fact that we’re not ‘born in the USA’ here at Stromberg (though Rick’s a US citizen). We’re not exactly related to old King George either. So we make no excuse for celebrating Fourth of July with all our American friends. You guys have played a huge part in helping Stromberg Carburetor get where we are today and we appreciate it big time. Have a great day!
