The Rasumssens won’t be offended if you tell them they have a nice set of headlights. That’s because they’re combining their passion for classic cars and supporting breast cancer research by bringing their “Buick for the Breasts” to this year’s O’Reilly Grand National Roadster Show.

Chris and Peggy Rasmussen’s drive to raise funds for breast cancer research have culminated in the pink ’56 Buick Century Riviera. They took to the cause after Peggy’s mother was diagnosed with the disease and had to undergo a total mastectomy. She’s now cancer free, but the couple made it their mission to do their part for the cause.

“Peggy and I want to honor her mother and all the breast cancer survivors out there through what we love – classic cars!” said Chris. “We do what we can to support breast cancer research, and we hope to get other classic car lovers to join us in our crusade to find a cure.”

The Rasmussens put more than five years of restoration and customization into this pink ’56 Buick Century Riviera. But the feature that sets this classic car apart is its prominent set of pink “ta tas” on the back, which were added in the hopes that other car-enthusiasts will join the fight against breast cancer.

You can see “Buick for the Breasts” at O’Reilly Grand National Roadster Show, taking place in Pomona Fairplex, CA, on now until Sunday, January 29.

You can do your part to wipe out breast cancer with AutoTex PINK windshield wiper blades.

Now available for purchase on Amazon.com, the AutoTex PINK blades are working to “Wipe Out Breast Cancer” by donating part of its proceeds to support those affected by breast cancer and to help fund ongoing research.

“We are so excited to be able to offer our windshield wiper blades on Amazon.com,” said Paula Lombard, WEXCO president and co-founder of AutoTex PINK. “AutoTex PINK is committed to doing our part to help the cause. Having our wiper blades available on Amazon.com will be a big boost to meeting our goal of helping fund continuing research that will hopefully one day eliminate this disease.”

One of the most common cancers to afflict women, breast cancer comes in second only to skin cancer. And since AutoTex PINK is a woman-owned company, they decided to take action by partnering with the National Breast Cancer Research Foundation in the United States and the Breast Cancer Society of Canada.

“The additional exposure of having AutoTex PINK available on Amazon.com will be a great help in getting the word out,” said Lombard. “We have a great product that supports a tremendous cause, now with the help of Amazon.com we can take the message to more people.”
