Charity and famous people definitely go together nowadays. While the entire internet went nuts with the ASL ice bucket challenge, other foundations are working on old school campaigns. Zac Efron has recently announced he teamed up with Make-A-Wish Foundation to offer one lucky fan the chance to win his very first car. The winner will also get free plane tickets from anywhere in the world.
The Neighbors star recently told his fans on Instagram all the details about the contest supporting his work with Make-A-Wish America and Make-A-Wish International. According to their website, the foundation grants the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions.

In the video Zac posted, the Hollywood star explains how to enter his contest and support the cause: “For just 1 $10 donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation, you’ll be entered to win a chance to fly to Los Angeles and take home my first car.” And the car is not just an old wreck, it turns out the 1990s Oldsmobile is very special to the 27-year old actor.

To be honest with you, it’s pretty nice more and more celebrities out there partner up with all sorts of charity foundations, but this is not really the reason we’re writing this article. Let us talk a little bit about this fellow’s first car.

Oldsmobile was a brand produced for most of its existence by General Motors. It was founded by Ransom E. Olds in 1897. When it was phased out in 2004, Oldsmobile was the oldest surviving American automobile marque, and one of the oldest in the world, after Daimler, Peugeot and Tatra.

However, after the tremendous success of the early and mid-1980s, things changed quickly for Oldsmobile, and by the early 1990s the brand had lost its place in the market, squeezed between other GM divisions, and with competition from new upscale imports.
