DETROIT, Mich., Aug 15, 2017 – This Saturday, August 19, eBay Motors will give millions of automotive fans a chance to check out its rebuild progress on a custom 1967 Mustang Fastback at Detroit’s Woodward Dream Cruise. As the third pit stop of the eBay Motors ‘On the Road’ cross-country tour, the Fastback is more than halfway complete.
“The Woodward Dream Cruise is about connecting and celebrating enthusiasts who have a passion for all things automotive. At eBay, we’re always looking for moments of inspiration where we can help enable our buyers to find the exact part or car they’re looking for at a great price,” said Suzy Deering, Chief Marketing Officer of eBay North America. “For more than sixteen years, eBay Motors has been the ultimate automotive destination, offering some of the widest selection of auto parts and vehicles to help enthusiasts and everyday drivers fuel their interests – whether it’s a part for their next upgrade or a one-of-a-kind classic car.”
Mike Finnegan, as seen on YouTube in Roadkill and Finnegan’s Garage, will meet with fans to reveal the latest installations on the Fastback. He says, “The Woodward Dream Cruise is one of the biggest automotive celebrations in the world, and this weekend, I’ll be lucky enough to be hanging out with eBay Motors. Whether you’re into classic cars or modern rides, we’ll be paying homage to both of them. Take our souped-up version of a throwback Fastback. We’re calling it a ‘rowdy restomod,’ and we’ve customized it to the limit. For the first time this weekend, we’ll unveil the completed metal work and talk about our wheel and tire selections. eBay Motors has a massive selection of parts and accessories, which let us choose from a bunch of unique items and make this ride Woodward-ready!”
