In this year’s charity project, Detroit’s Classic Rock radio station (94.7 WCSX) let listeners choose which classic vehicle Big Jim’s House would bring back to life to raise money for Vets Returning Home. Voters decided to rebuild a 1973 Ford Bronco from the ground up, beating out other popular classics.
The Stone Soup Bronco Project is a community-driven effort to restore a vintage ’70s Ford Bronco. From the beginning of their Bronco’s rebuild, Big Jim’s House has kept followers updated every step, even letting the community contribute and vote on essential decisions, including the paint color. You can enter to win the fully restored 1974 Ford Bronco by purchasing a $10 raffle ticket. The vintage car will be on display at the Woodward Dream Cruise this August, with all proceeds benefiting Vets Returning Home. Purchase your ticket and support their local Michigan charity helping veterans transition into stable lives.
