Merry Christmas, and congratulations to Mark Garety, who is having an especially good Christmas this year! I personally informed Mark today that he has won the $10,000 prize package from our 2013 Motorz Mega Craftsman Christmas giveaway! Mark works as a manufacturing engineer for Caterpillar, Inc. and lives in Illinois. Mark is married with a 15 month old daughter, and has another baby on the way!
Once Mark found out, here’s what he said:
Wow! I am stunned that I was selected for this. I entered on a whim on Christmas eve thinking that I wouldn’t get selected. I was shocked to find out I was the winner! I never imagined that I would ever win a contest like this. I drive a 2008 Mustang GT as my daily driver. At times, it serves as our family vehicle, but it is also my project car. I have done some work to it over time, but mostly small projects. The car is still mostly stock with a cloth interior. Notable upgrades include a performance tune, custom exhaust, vinyl stripes, painted valve covers, & rear lower control arms. I enjoy cleaning it up and detailing it. I am a member of a local car club, and take it out to shows whenever I can.
I do all the work on our vehicles. I have even changed the transmission and clutch in my wife’s car. I have a handful of tools, but have only bought them as needed for whatever job I’m doing at the time. There are many times when I wish I had a better tool for the job, but I have to make do with what I’ve got. Finding out that I won this contest was shocking and exciting. My wife and I immediately called family to let them know. We are very appreciative and I feel very blessed to have been selected. What a great Christmas gift!
From all of us at Motorz, we would all like to say congratulations and a very Merry Christmas to Mark and his beautiful family for winning our huge 2013 Motorz Mega Craftsman Christmas prize package, valued at over $10,000!

CONGRATULATIONS TO MARK GARETY OF ILLINOIS
San Diego, Calif. – Jan. 8, 2014 – Motorz™ congratulates Mark Garety of Metamora, Ill., the
lucky winner of the 2013 Motorz Mega Craftsman® Christmas (MMCC) giveaway valued at more
“I am so excited to have won this incredible contest,” stated Garety. “I have been watching Motorz since its second season, and the show has helped me take on a number of projects. I have some basic hand tools in the garage, and usually buy just what is needed for each project. I can’t wait to have all the great Craftsman tools and accessories for my garage, along with all the other incredible products in this prize package!”
The 26-year old Garety is a Mustang enthusiast, car club member and true DIY’er who has completed a number of upgrades his family’s vehicles including a performance tuner and exhaust, rear lower control arms and valve covers. He also enjoys detailing vehicles, and is always looking forward to his next project.
“The thing I like most about Motorz is that the show is filmed in a real garage using common tools,” continued Garety. “I started watching the Mustang episodes even before I bought my car because I knew I was going to get a 2008 Mustang GT, and I already had plans for some of the projects I wanted to take on. Motorz has helped me complete some of these projects successfully, and it’s been a lot of fun.”
“It’s always great for me to personally contact a contest winner, but to talk to Mark and hear the excitement in his voice and his true enthusiasm for Motorz was a thrill for me,” stated Chris Duke, executive producer and host of Motorz. “I know that Mark is going to use and appreciate everything in this prize package, and that really means a lot to the whole Motorz crew and to everyone who has made this contest possible.”
