BendPak’s Photo Shoot With Bill Goldberg•
In this industry, we get to work with the biggest names in entertainment who are also car guys like us. Most of the time they’re just customers who like BendPak so much they agree to say a word or two on our behalf. But in cases of the extreme automotive fan, we’re lucky enough to feature them in their very own BendPak car lift ad. This last Monday, we got the ball rolling on our newest addition. Our trip took us south to wrestler, actor and host Bill Goldberg’s impressive garage and automotive collection.
We saw a minimum of 12 bays on Mr. Goldberg’s property, and six of them contain a BendPak car lift. He’s got two BendPak 2-post car lifts, one BendPak 4-post car lift and three general purpose single-post parking lifts. That’s right, he’s got six of BendPak’s finest all at home. We like to have each ad be 100% unique to the personality, and Bill is a true connoisseur. So what better way to make sure it’s going to howl Goldberg than to take the photos in the host’s very own Garage Mahal.
We’ve got a lot of work to do before the ad is ready for prime time, but until then we’ve got these behind-the-scenes photos of Bill’s bitchin’ set up.
In a couple of the photos you can see the car we’re featuring, Bill’s one-of-a-kind 1970 Mustang Boss 429 “Lawman.” Actually it was one of two such automobiles that were sent to Vietnam to give the troops a taste of awesome Americana-Automobilia while they were so far from home. One of the two was crushed at sea by a shipping container. We’d hate to be the guy who had to explain that one.
Bill’s a huge supporter of US soldiers and vets, so it makes a lot of sense that he’d have a special affinity for this rare vehicle.
In the background, you can also peak out a ‘68 Plymouth GTX convertible. This is the car that started a life long car obsession in Bill. Currently, he’s in the middle of restoring it to drive up the coast with his family.
Big thanks to Bill Goldberg, Chris Zsarney and the guys from Zstudios and everyone who put in this crazy-fun 16 hour day.
