Steelers fan drives away in style

December 31, 2012 by Teresa Varley


The Steelers and Ford made the holiday season a special one for Diana Kostelnik of Latrobe, Pa., when she won the Ford “Toughest Truck Toughest Team,” contest and was presented with a 2012 Ford F-150 XLT SuperCrew wrapped in Steelers colors and logos.

“I’ve never won anything in my life,” said Kostelnik, 64. “I couldn’t believe it. We were shocked. This is awesome.

“It’s going to be cool driving around in it. We are really proud.”

The contest to win the truck began during Steelers training camp and extended through Dec. 14, with the truck on display at all home games as a part of the team’s partnership with Ford.

“As the official truck of the Steelers, it only made sense to celebrate that partnership by giving one away to a lucky fan,” said Joey Thurby, chairman of the Neighborhood Ford Store, a group of 81 Ford dealers in western Pennsylvania, southeastern Ohio and the panhandles of West Virginia and Maryland. “And by wrapping it in black and gold, it’ll hands-down be the best-looking truck in town.

“The toughest team deserves the toughest truck – and that’s why the F-Series is the Official Truck of the Pittsburgh Steelers. We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate that partnership than to give away the ultimate tailgating vehicle.”
