Sheen restored the Mustang to complete NASCAR specifications in 2006 and added his signature on the dashboard. This one-of-a-kind vehicle would cost approximately $300,000 to duplicate. Net proceeds benefit C5LA, a five-year youth leadership development program that begins with eighth graders and is designed to inspire high-potential, at-risk youth from under-resources environments in Los Angeles to obtain higher education and personal success.
Some facts about the car:
- Currently approved for street use in California
- Only 155 miles on the vehicle since restoration
- Can be driven in competition racing sanctioned venues such as Club Events or possible VARA, NASA and HSR events.
C5LA believes that empowering youth to attain higher education and achieve personal success is more than just fixing our schools or getting higher test scores, it’s about affecting the entire environment, both inside and outside of school. C5LA introduces the concept of college early in the program and sets college matriculation as a realistic goal along with the supports and tools on how to achieve this goal. C5LA introduces youth to new activities, ideas and concepts, which expand their horizons and visions for their futures. C5LA engages youth in challenging activities that build self-confidence as well as in community service and advocacy initiatives that reinforce the idea of giving back and leadership in one’s own community. By exposing youth to new career opportunities through job shadowing and career exploration, C5LA believes that they will have the skills needed to succeed in the future. On Friday, November 11th C5LA will be holding its first annual “Inspire the Dream” fundraiser at the Skirball Cultural Center.
