Florida residents Mike Guido and wife of 23 years, Rhonnie, collaborated on the video that earned them the grand prize: $2,500 and a trip for 2 to Vegas to attend the automotive industry's premier events: AAPEX (Automotive Aftermarket Products Expo) and SEMA (Specialty Equipment Market Association).

The Guidos submitted a highly humorous video featuring CRC Ultra Screwloose® Super Penetrant.  In the video, after Mike makes multiple unsuccessful attempts at removing an upper ball joint nut on his classic Mini Cooper, his wife gets it done quickly and easily using Screwloose®.

Mike is a long-time fan of CRC products and uses CRC Brakleen® Brake Parts Cleaner for all of his street and race car brake assemblies. "I also use Brakleen® as the final cleaner for all of my parts that I either paint or powdercoat," says Guido. "I've tried different cleaners over the years, but nothing cleans like Brakleen®. It has really helped ensure the quality of my builds, some of which are internationally known."

Mike owns 5 classic Mini Coopers and runs the world's largest classic-only Mini club  ( In the late '80's, he combined his professional road racing, clowning, and graphic artist careers into a real-life racing cartoon character with a drug-free theme, "The World's Fastest Clown," which became America's #1 elementary school drug prevention program. Mr. Guido's current youth campaign ( focuses on tobacco use prevention.  He hopes to reach the impressionable pre-teens who he feels are largely overlooked by state and national anti-smoking campaigns.

Mike and Rhonnie Guido will be guests of CRC Industries at the company's AAPEX booth #4407 on Tuesday, November 2nd. CRC will air the winning video in the booth.
