LAVERGNE, Tenn.—As part of its nationwide ``treasure hunt'' sweepstakes to find the oldest functioning Ammco and Coats equipment, Hennessy Industries Inc. said it will award each of three grand prize winners a four-day, three-night stay in Las Vegas, plus new equipment to replace their ``antique'' brake lathes, tire changers or wheel balancers. The company said 50 second-place and 75 third-place runners-up will receive Ammco or Coats anniversary commemorative items.
Hennessy is also compiling information and stories about its machinery, and is asking customers to provide a brief description, in 150 words or less, of the Hennessy equipment they own. Some of the resulting anecdotes may be featured in upcoming advertisements.
Contestants should submit their name, company name, address, daytime phone number, the equipment's approximate purchase date, model, serial number and story to: Hennessy Industries Inc., c/o Higgins & John Advertising; Attention: 75/50 Sweepstakes, 5000 Linbar Drive, Suite 285, Nashville, TN 37211.
