Chevrolet Deploying “Rescue Squad” at Woodward Dream Cruise
Specially Equipped Silverados to Aid Classics In Need
There are fewer things more quintessentially American than classic car shows. They’re fun for the whole family and a great time for gearheads of all walks of life to gather and “talk shop.” However, the other experience often synonymous with classic cars is mechanical trouble of one sort or another. As fun as classics can be, they’re often susceptible to overheating, electrical problems, mechanical failures, and other assorted manifestations of Murphy’s Law. To help keep these icons of yore rolling at the Woodward Dream Cruise in Detroit, Chevrolet is teaming up with several local dealerships to deploy a fleet of six 2016 Chevrolet Silverado “Rescue Squad” pickups at the event on Saturday, August 20.
The trucks are staffed with ASE-certified technicians and will provide on-site assistance to event participants that stall, overheat, or run out of gas. As a public service announcement, Chevrolet suggests participants double-check the condition of batteries, fluids, tires, and wiper blades and make sure they have a full tank of gas. An estimated 40,000 vehicles are expected at this year’s event, assuring that the rescue squad will be called upon at some point. And yes, the rescue squad will even help out Ford owners.
