Gladiator® GarageWorks Turns on the Ignition for the 'Put Your Garage in Overdrive' Contest
Contest Exclusively Available to Readers of Motor Trend, Automobile, Hot Rod and Car Craft Magazines

No one doubts the king of the "garage castle" is the automobile, but as clutter mounts, people might be spending more time looking for their tools than having the chance to work on their prized possession. It's time to shift gears. From Sept. 1, 2010 to Nov. 19, 2010, Gladiator® GarageWorks is offering readers of Motor Trend, Automobile, Hot Rod and Car Craft the opportunity to describe their dream garage for a chance to win Gladiator brand product in the "Put Your Garage in Overdrive" contest.

"So much time and energy is put into our cars yet we rarely make the investment to supe up its home, the garage," said Lou Ann Schafer, senior marketing manager, Gladiator® GarageWorks. "Now, we're asking the readers of these select automotive brands to put the pedal to the medal and describe their dream garage so we can help them put it into overdrive."

Between now and Nov. 19, readers of the print and online editions of these magazines will find an exclusive link to enter the "Put Your Garage in Overdrive" contest. Entrants will be asked to explain, in 500 words or less, what they currently do in their garage, what storage challenge they contend with, what their dream garage would be and how Gladiator® GarageWorks can help.
