It’s the goal of many enthusiasts to get their car featured in a publication such as the one you’re currently reading, or of the paper variety. Getting your car shown on the cover of a newsletter, the front page of your favorite enthusiast web-site or the glossy cover of a magazine is icing on the cake.
Most of you reading this are familiar with our friends over at Jegs.com, the online superstore for just about anything performance related. Whether you’re going fast in a straight line, around cones or the road course, or just looking for upgrades for your street car or truck, Jegs probably has what you want.
Aside from its online presence the Jegs catalog has been a mainstay on the magazine rack, coffee table, and in the offices of most of us for years if not decades. We can remember well before the age of electronic media grabbing that catalog in our teenage hands -finger tips blackened by newsprint, circling parts, dog-earing pages, and planning our next big build. All while figuring out how long we’d have to work at $4/hour washing cars, mowing lawns, or flipping burgers to get those parts.
Did you ever wonder about the cars on the cover of the Jegs catalog? Sure there’s the cool Jegs drag cars that are often prominently featured there. However, there are plenty of cool hot rods and muscle cars that also make the cover every year. Now it could be your turn to get your car featured on the cover.
Imagine opening the mailbox, only to find your car looking back at you from the glossy cover of the Jegs catalog-that is an irreplaceable feeling. Your car buddies probably all get the Jegs catalog too, so chances are no sooner than you find a copy with your car on the cover, your phone and social media are going to blow up with everyone talking about how you made the cover.
At this point you’re asking your screen “what do I need to do to get on the cover of the Jegs catalog?” Simple. Head over to the Jegs Facebook contest page. Fill out the form with all the appropriate info of your car, and then submit that info along with a hot image of your car. This is a social media contest, where other users will vote to choose the winning car, so don’t just snap a pic the driveway, get out there and be creative, make your car stand out, and tell your buddies to enter and vote for you too. You never know, you could open the mailbox in a couple of months and find your headlights staring back at you.
