Copart Inc. announced the winner of its Fourth Annual Copart Rebuild Challenge. The contest was designed for car enthusiasts and auto rebuilders to show how they restored, customized or rebuilt a vehicle.
Copart members from across the country submitted before- and after-photos of their rebuild projects for a chance to win the $5,000 grand prize. A panel of Copart judges narrowed the contest entries to 12 finalists, and then thousands participated in a public vote to decide the first, second and third prizewinners.
After the voting period ended, the $5,000 Grand Prize was awarded to Shaun Lynn from Cleburne, Texas. In his photo, Lynn depicted how he rebuilt a Subaru Outback bought from Copart, which he deemed the “Dadwagon.”
