WCSX Promotes JJ & Lynne's Stone Soup GTO Kids Leukemia Fundraiser
A GTO It Is!
JJ & Lynne's Stone Soup Project(tm)
Decide On Classic Car
(Detroit, Mich.-January 28, 2005) . . . WCSX's Morning Show hosts Jim Johnson (JJ) & Lynne Woodison announced that the 3rd Annual Stone Soup Project car will be a 1965 GTO convertible.
JJ & Lynne's Stone Soup Project was inspired by a fable wherein everyone throws something in the pot to make a great meal. The JJ & Lynne Stone Soup Project will harness the generosity, expertise and ingenuity of WCSX listeners from around the Detroit area to rebuild a 1965 GTO from the ground up to raise money for The Children's Leukemia Foundation of Michigan. In its first two years, the project raised over $350,000 by rebuilding and raffling a 1967 Mustang and a 1970 Hemi Road Runner.
WCSX listener Jeff Golota of Novi got the ball rolling when he donated the shell of the car that will become JJ & Lynne's Stone Soup GTO....affectionately referred to as a "Goat" by fans the world over. Golota had purchased the car in 1982 with hopes of restoring it, but then came marriage, children and starting a business. For the last nine years the car has sat in a semi trailer. One of Golota's employees, Dale Spurlock, suggested that he donate it to the project and so begins the journey of JJ & Lynne's Stone Soup GTO! (see photos of the donated car at www.wcsx.com)
With the help of many WCSX listeners, as well as companies who will donate parts, the JJ & Lynne Stone Soup Project now begins the task of putting together in months what it would take most people years to do.
