Our 68 Corvette roll thanks to Robert Bernard Tires and Mechanical!
In January 2017, the Car Guide was pulling a 1967 Ford Mustang restored by students of the School of Trades in motorized equipment Montreal (EMEMM). All proceeds from ticket sales ($ 25,550) were paid to the foundations with a core academic perseverance. If we could put such a handsome amount, it is through the participation of several sponsors.
Five BFGoodrich Red Line!
One of the sponsors was Robert Bernard Tires and Machinery, based in the very pretty village of Saint-Paul d’Abbotsford in Monteregie. Packed by this experience, Robert Bernard Tires and Mechanical and general manager, Pierre Beauregard, returned without hesitation into adventure Project 68 Corvette providing five tires, BFGoodrich Red Line size 215 / 70R15. They also provided five original wheels. Overall, it is a sum of nearly $ 3000 Montérégienne the company invested in youth. For if we had to purchase these tires and the wheels, the amount that we would have given to foundations would have been diminishes.
