April 2006 Shine Winner Stolen
Eaton is joining in the worldwide search for “Chocolate Thunder” the $450,000 award-winning show car built by Rad Rides that was displayed at
the Eaton booth during this year’s SEMA show. A $5,000 reward is being offered for tips that to lead to the return of the classic car and arrest and conviction
of whoever took it.
The vehicle, a 1937 Ford convertible with an Eaton supercharger, limited slip differential and Aeroquip hoses, was stolen around 6 a.m., April 6, from a parking
lot in Brockville, Ontario, Canada along with its support trailer and Ford pick up tow vehicle.
Police have no leads and there are fears that the vehicle is headed out of North America and destined to be sold on the black market. It was one of three
classic vehicles stolen that week in Brockville.
Rad Rides visionary Troy Trepanier said his team has sunk more than 8,500 hours into building the custom vehicle for its private owner. They vehicle was
touring car shows throughout North America and was being transported in a 32’ trailer sponsored by Eaton.
