LINGENFELTER CAR COLLECTION CHARITY SPRING OPEN HOUSE Benefitting the American Cancer Society

One of the top rated car collections in the world will be opening its doors to the public for one special day. The unique vehicles will be available for viewing as money and awareness is raised to support the programs of the American Cancer Society during an open house on Saturday, April 29, 10 am – 5 pm.

“We are thankful for the generosity the Lingenfelters and their ongoing support of our mission,” said Cheryl Donohoe, senior director corporate relations for the American Cancer Society. “The donations raised at this event will help the Society provide critical support to cancer patients through the many programs and services we offer, fund lifesaving research to save lives from cancer and enable us prevent cancer in our community and across the nation.”

The Lingenfelter Collection is a private collection of Ken and Kristen Lingenfelter. Over 200 distinctive vehicles, comprised of Corvettes, Muscle Cars and Exotics, fill the large, 40,000 Sq. ft., facility in Brighton. Each spring and fall, the Lingenfelters open the Collection to the public while raising support for important nonprofit organizations. This is the second consecutive year that the American Cancer Society has been chosen to be the recipient of the proceeds from the spring event.

The American Cancer Society relies on more than 100 years of evidence and proven results to prevent cancer, save lives, and diminish suffering from cancer. The organization provides the funds for cutting-edge cancer research that can lead to better treatments; advocates for better laws to help people locally and across the nation who are threatened by cancer; and helps patients and their families with their most pressing needs, including getting rides to treatment, navigating the health care system, and dealing with the side effects of treatment. Thanks in part to the Society’s work, there are nearly 14.5 million people alive in the United States alone who have survived cancer. In fact, more than 500 lives are being saved each day that would have otherwise been lost to cancer.

Guests attending the Open House will be able to support the Society by making a monetary donation at the door. Throughout the afternoon, Ken Lingenfelter will be signing a limited edition event poster, the 2017 Indy Show Car used to promote the Detroit Grand Prix will be on display, Dream Maker’s Automotive will have an exhibit and special show car for viewing, and door prizes will be awarded. Refreshments and food vendors, including Tony’s Dogs and Marconi’s Pizza, will also be available as guests browse the showroom. All open house proceeds will be donated to the American Cancer Society.

New to the event this year is an Adam’s Polishes Detail Clinic. Adam Pitale, Founder of Adam’s Polishes, will share tips and advice on proper/safe washing, machine polishing/swirl removal, and proper protection and maintenance.

Saturday, April 29,
Adam’s Polishes Detail Clinic 9:00 am – 5 pm
Collection Open House 10:00 am – 5:00 pm

48- Hour Corvette Update

It has been a FANTASTIC weekend for the RideTech crew, as Chris Smith piloted the Instinct-equipped 48-Hour Corvette to yet another amazing win!!

The Fort Worth Goodguys show is historically hot, dusty, and chock-full of great competition. RideTech and our customers again filled the leaderboard at this event; four out of the top 5 spots in the PRO class were RideTech-equipped, with the 1st, 2nd, and 4th place spots going to cars with our new Instinct Electronic Shocks! Texas is also renowned for truck culture, so it’s no surprise that the Truck class at this event was one of the largest of the entire Goodguys season…and it’s also no surprise that all of the top 3 spots in the Truck class were RideTech customers! The weather was fantastic and boasted near-record attendance, the turnout for the autocross was phenomenal, and both competitors and spectators were impressed by the turnout and the awesome autocross action. We’ve got lots more events coming up in March and April, so stay tuned for even more great finishes by the RideTech team!

The Arrow SAM Project

The Arrow SAM Project C7 Z06 Corvette

Arrow launched the Semi-Autonomous Motorcar (SAM) project in 2014. The current SAM car is a 2016 Corvette C7 Z06 modified so that a quadriplegic former IndyCar driver, Sam Schmidt, once again can drive using only his head to control the car.

Arrow and Schmidt have driven oval tracks, road courses and mountain summit runs at speeds up to 152 mph. The purpose of the SAM project is not only to push the boundaries of our transportation system, but also to rapidly innovate new technologies in ways never before thought possible.

In September 2016, Sam Schmidt became the first person with quadriplegia in the United States to receive an autonomous vehicle driver’s license. He has since driven the SAM car on the streets of Las Vegas, Nevada proving that the technology used in the SAM car is capable of much more than just turning laps.

Lingenfelter Performance Engineering is proud to have partnered with Arrow to further enhance the performance capability of the Arrow SAM car. Original plans were made to push the SAM car’s factory LT4 supercharger to its limits. Ideally this would enable the SAM car to achieve more power for high speed runs. With further review of the tasks at hand, Lingenfelter asked Magnuson Superchargers for their support to join this incredible build.

With both partners on board, the SAM car was upgraded to an aftermarket supercharger. The Arrow SAM car will be the first Corvette C7 Z06 in production with Magnuson’s NEW LT4 Heartbeat TVS2300 kit.

Together, Arrow, Lingenfelter Performance Engineering and Magnuson are working in the world of Five Years Out to turn what is possible into what is practical and help the SAM car reach its highest performance capabilities. Be sure to follow and share our journey on this incredible build. Stayed tuned for additional photos and video.
