Hey Sajeev,

Hope this finds you well. I wanted to get your opinion on car sponsorships…if they still exist. I see a bunch of websites all over claiming to get a person’s car repaired or modded up on someone else’s dime. I look at these sites and they scream SCAM to me.

Maybe it’s because they look like throw backs to GeoCities…

Anyway, if guys are still able to do this, how?

If I can get ol’ Wolverine here kitted the way I want it with little or no cost…

Sajeev answers:

Do these sponsorship websites have MIDI music, too?  That’s when I know there’s a quality company ready to sponsor my ride!

The old adage about free lunches is true: legit sponsorship requires mad Public Relations skillz, and a good idea behind it.  Like the initiatives behind Wounded Warrior’s High Five Project and their wrapped Ford products. Your opinions about W.W. as an organization aside, their raison d’être certainly makes a convincing sponsorship statement.

So what the heck is your raison d’être? And can you make a convincing sponsorship proposition with it and Wolverine? Time to study up, time to craft a business plan and one amazing elevator pitch.

Good luck with that!
