The 2014 Cool Rides Online Summer Scavenger Hunt



As the song says, “Summer’s here and the time is right for driving on the street!”  Well, with all due respect to Martha and the Vandellas “Dancing in the Streets” is fine too!  The point is SUMMER IS FINALLY HERE!

And for Cool Rides Online members that means cool cars in the streets, road trips, boats on the water, mowers on the lawn and even planes in the sky, because as our founder Marcel says, “If it’s cool and has an engine in it, we want to see it!”

And see it we will, because YOU are going to show it to us…all summer!

As our Honorary CRO First Champion, I’m proud to announce and thrilled to invite you to enter our CRO SUMMER PHOTO SCAVENGER HUNT!

Here’s How It Works.

sema-2013-logo1Starting on Memorial Day (May 26, 2014) and going through Labor Day (September 1, 2014). Take photos of your Cool Ride in the following categories, and post them in the 2014 CRO Scavenger Hunt section of the CRO Forum.  The more scavenger hunt photos you post, the more your score increases.  The more your score increases, the better your chances of winning a trip to the 2014 Specialty Equipment Manufacturer’s Association (SEMA) show in Las Vegas, November 3-7.  That’s right, Cool Rides Online is sending a CRO member and a guest to SEMA to be a guest at the Gold Eagle Co booth and be present when the STA-BIL 360° 1971 Camaro from CarFix is presented to its new owner.  You will also get the chance to meet Jared from the CarFix show.

–          Your Cool Ride in front of your home
