On November 22, AutoCon Events, Purist Group and Hankook Tire USA teamed up to host their Second Annual Winter Drive. Held at Hankook Tire USA's facility in Rancho Cucamonga, Calif., the event aimed to raise donations for a number of charity organizations as well as collect toys and others aid for disadvantaged and less-fortunate children.
Rather than charge an admission fee, the attendees were asked to bring a new, unwrapped toy to support the cause. The result amounted to dozens of vehicles across eras and traditions and hundreds of people coming out to show their support. Some notable attendees include Bisimoto Engineering's Bisi Ezerioha, who was out there with a few of his Porsche, and Bulletproof Automotive, which brought along its 370Z and GT-R project cars along with their Concept One FR-S.
In the end Winter Drive 2014 turned out to be a huge success, gathering several pallets worth of toys for children in need, and even gained the attention of both the California State Senate and US House of Representatives. Both governing bodies awarded those behind Winter Drive 2014 with certificates of recognition to honor their hard work in helping those in need.
