Congratulations to Eric Christen, our "Search for Mr. Gasket" winner. Eric lives in Florida with his wife, Lorraine and his two kids. His wife was instrumental in this new journey, entering him in the contest. Her vision was to see Eric fulfill his dreams of being involved in the restoration and hot-rodding industry.

Eric says the defining moment where he caught the fever for speed, was when he first rode in his best friend's '71 Nova SS. Since then, he has been restoring cars and using performance parts from Mr. Gasket, Mallory, ACCEL and Lakewood. Eric went school for auto mechanics in the hopes of one day opening his own shop. Right now, Eric has been working on his '68 Mustang, where he has done all of his own restoration work and is about to re-assemble the engine. The project has taken 7 years, because this guy is not only someone we're proud to call Mr. Gasket, but also a truly dedicated father.

Join us in congratulating Eric, as he starts this new journey as the next Mr. Gasket.
