” contest challenges our readers to solve an automotive riddle, for a chance to win $100. And each month, we receive hundreds of responses from aftermarket professionals trying to guess the model of the vehicle depicted.

The correct answer for the February/March contest is the Toyota Tundra. The winner is Greg Rogers, inside sales and axle & suspension sales at Potter Webster Co. in Portland, Oregon.

Now, let’s get to know the “Guess the Car” champion.

CM: How long have you been working in the auto parts business?  

GR: I started in the auto parts business in 1976 and also have worked in engine remanufacturing and high-performance engine sales. I am currently in a heavy-duty truck parts distributor managing their axle and suspension sales to OEM semi-trailer manufacturers, but I still get calls for fleet-shop pickup parts and all the auto parts for our employees.

CM: What do you like most about your job?

GR: I like being able to custom-engineer something that hasn’t been done before. Doesn’t happen often, but it can be rewarding.

CM: What’s the strangest question a customer has asked you?  

GR: I had a young woman once ask if I had any wiper blades to fit her Chevrolet Mustang.

CM: What’s the coolest car you’ve ever owned or worked on?

GR: I’ve spec’d valvetrains for NASCARs and for record-breaking dragsters. The most challenging project was converting an alcohol-burning, turbocharged Corvair to Weber side-draft carburetors and jetting them properly.

CM: Do you have any interesting hobbies? What do you do for fun?

GR: I am currently writing a trilogy screenplay about “The Adventures of Major Tom.” For fun, I have a killer stereo, and I like to barbeque.

CM: What’s your dream car?

GR: I have a 1986 Dodge Conquest TSI, but I think that I would rather have a 1972 Mach 1 Mustang.

      Now, let’s get to know the “Guess the Car” champion.
      CM: How long have you been working in the auto parts business?
      DW: Off and on for probably 18 years. I’ve always been with NAPA Auto Parts, but at different locations.
      CM: What do you like most about your job?
      DW: The people. I’m a people person, so I like the camaraderie with my co-workers and the relationships that you form with the customers.
      CM: What’s the strangest question a customer has asked you?
      DW: Well, I asked a customer how many lug holes a rotor had, and he asked me what I meant by that.
      CM: What’s the coolest car you’ve ever owned or worked on?
      DW: I helped a buddy with his 2019 Chevy Corvette. That’s a pretty fun car.
      CM: Did you get to drive it?
      DW: Oh yeah. Absolutely.
      CM: Do you have any interesting hobbies? What do you do for fun?
      DW: I’m a musician on the side. I play the bass guitar, and I sing in a couple bands.
      CM: What’s your dream car?
      DW: When I was a kid I had a poster on my wall of a 959 Porsche cabriolet. I’d say that’s as good a dream car as any.
