The Contest: We asked our FACEBOOK friends: Does a military family you know need and deserve a car makeover? Do you have a military friend, neighbor or family member who needs a reliable vehicle? Then enter them to win the J & G Transmissions 2016 Veterans Car Makeover Giveaway. It's easy, just submit a :30 sec. video or visit J & G Transmissions FACEBOOK page and send pictures of your nominee's vehicle and in 100 words or less tell us why you think your military friend or family member should win a chance to get their vehicle back on the road in style in a beautifully redone car makeover. Judging will be based on overall need and clarity of written statement. Nominee must be a licensed Utah driver 21 or older. **Scroll down for more contest details.

At J & G Transmissions we love cars, trucks and all things on wheels. In an effort to give back to the community for supporting our Murray, Utah business the past 27 years, we wanted to present a promotion that would give a vehicle or car "makeover" to a deserving family that seriously needed wheels. We chose to give away a completely refurbished Ford Windstar Minivan in 2013, and gave away a car "makeover" in 2012.
