Bobby Likis, automotive expert and host of car-talk show “Bobby Likis Car Clinic,” announced Glenn Miller from Chicago, IL as the winner of the "Car Story with Dad” contest on the Car Clinic live globalcast on Saturday, June 14. Miller won a Passport MAX high-definition radar/laser detector, courtesy of Escort, Inc.
"Car Story with Dad" invited participants to share their favorite car story about their fathers. During the weeks prior to Father’s Day, Likis hand-selected some of his favorite stories to spotlight on the live Car Clinic globalcast and to share on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest, and Tumblr.
Miller’s story was one of thousands entered into the Father’s Day contest. His, however, was bittersweet. His father recently passed away from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Miller is passionate about his father’s legend living on through him and reflects, “If it weren’t for my dad who showed me the ropes about cars and taking care of them, I wouldn’t have the love affair today that I have with an automobile.” Likis agrees and credits his own father for igniting his passion for cars.
Remarks Ron Gividen, Escort's Public Relations and Media Director, "We are delighted to partner with Bobby Likis in the Father's Day giveaway." He adds, “What better way to honor Dad than to tell his story, and Escort is pleased to offer a gift that keeps giving back. Like other highly prized tools, a really good radar detector, like the new Passport Max, will keep Mr. Miller informed so that he can drive safer and drive smarter every time he gets in his car!”
The PASSPORT Max is the first radar detector with HD radar performance and is compatible with Escort Live, Escort’s social networking for the road. Equipped with unique Escort features like AutoLearn and the DEFENDER Database, the PASSPORT Max delivers quicker response time, greater sensitivity and more accurate signal recognition. The Passport MAX also features high-speed, digital-signal processing which removes RF interference and identifies radar threats other detectors won’t see.
