Source Interlink Media's Executive Vice President, Doug Evans, was awarded the 2011 Lee Iacocca Award for his service to the automotive hobby community at the recent National Parts Depot All-GM Oktoberfest car show in Ocala, Florida.
Evans, who owns a '70 Chevelle convertible, a '62 Cadillac Coupe de Ville and a '61 Impala (among other classics), was recognized by National Parts Depot for his work overseeing more than 46 automotive magazine titles, two television shows and 35 events, as well as his work with the Specialty Equipment Market Association, which assists in preserving the automotive hobby.
The prestigious Lee Iacocca Award was established to recognize outstanding classic car enthusiasts. This award is not only given for "Dedication To Excellence In Perpetuating An American Automotive Tradition", but also celebrates auto enthusiasts on multiple levels, including character, community involvement, integrity and a level of excellence in presentation of their own vehicle. This unique award is linked with the Iacocca Family Foundation whose mission it is to find a cure for diabetes.
Doug explains, "I am deeply touched and honored to accept the Lee Iacocca award on behalf of automotive enthusiasts across the globe. It is my privilege to work every day in an industry that is the fuel for the passions of millions of people and to do so with the finest team in the world ... my colleagues at Source Interlink Media".
