QPC Launches Facebook Contest to Increase Awareness of Aftermarket Part Bill

The Quality Parts Coalition (QPC) launched a "Me and
My Car" contest today on Facebook for a chance to win a Garmin GPS nuvi
3750 and a $150 gasoline gift card.

As the QPC is anticipating the introduction of a bill
that will address car manufacturer design patents soon, it’s hoping to engage
with consumers in the hopes of not only capturing their love for their cars,
but also raising awareness about cost-effective ways to repair them while
encouraging them to take action by signing the petition. 

"We’re doing this contest not only to capture the
connection drivers have with their cars, but also to raise awareness about the
importance of affordable auto parts alternatives when the time comes for
consumers to repair their cars," said QPC Executive Director Eileen
Sottile.

The contest, which runs from Sept. 14 to Oct. 14, invites
car owners to reflect on their fondest car-related memories – whether it
involved fighting over who got to ride "shotgun" on a family road
trip, driving to their favorite band’s concert, visiting a secluded hideaway
with a special someone or watching a scenic view from their car.

To enter the contest, consumers must first click the
"Like" button on QPC’s Facebook page and fill out the registration
form. Next, they have to upload a photo of themselves with their automobiles at
a unique or special location. Finally, they must post a story about a positive,
memorable experience with their car in 1,000 characters or less.
