LAS VEGAS (Nov. 7, 2016) — Daystar Products International, a plastics and rubber molder from Phoenix, won Transamerican Auto Parts' “Life is Better Off-Road” award for its moonshiner-inspired take on a 1941 Dodge Powerwagon dubbed “Bootlegger.”
The firm's vehicle took the bootlegger theme and ran with it, impressing the judges panel with its creative use of aftermarket parts and a nod to history and a keen eye for design, Transamerican Auto Parts President and CEO Greg Adler said.
“The Bootlegger captures the essence of the Life is Better Off-Road Award for its on and off-road capabilities and customized update of the vintage vehicles associated with bootlegging.”
The Powerwagon's 416-cubic-inch, 720-hp, supercharged enginer, racing transmission, custom driveshafts and longer leaf springs made it stand out as off-road capable in a field of remarkable entries ranging from Jeep Rubicons to Titan XDs, Transamerican said. The Powerwagon runs on Interco Super Swamper Tires
