WCSX Stone Soup Project Returns

GREATER MEDIA Classic Rock WCSX/DETROIT is proud to announce the return of the WCSX STONE SOUP PROJECT™. It's been two years since they built their last car and they are excited to bring the program back.
WCSX's STONE SOUP PROJECT was inspired by the old stone soup fable wherein everyone throws something in the pot to make a great meal. The WCSX STONE SOUP PROJECT harnesses the generosity and ingenuity of WCSX listeners from around the DETROIT area to rebuild a classic car from the ground up in order to raise money for a local charity. Over the years, 94.7 WCSX raised in excess of $1.2 million dollars for charities in Metro DETROIT.
WCSX listeners opened their garages and offered to donate their cars to the Stone Soup Project™. The five cars were posted on WCSX.com for listeners to vote for the one they would like to see get restored into a one-of-a-kind classic car.
The WCSX morning show of JIM O'BRIEN and TRUDI DANIELSJ unveiled a 1970 Pontiac Firebird at Autorama at COBO HALL in DETROIT. GILBERT BUNCH of LIVONIA, MI loved the STONE SOUP PROJECT and bought tickets for the raffle every year. His own pride and joy was a 1970 Firebird that he was working on in his garage.
BUNCH passed away in DECEMBER of a heart attack, and his family reached out to WCSX to offer up the car for this year’s project. WCSX's O'BRIEN said, "It will be an honor to turn this car into an incredible show car, while raising money for HOLY CROSS CHILDREN'S SERVICES in DETROIT."
