Steph and I have this great car that we bought just a year ago. We really
hate to sell it. Especially me. I love it. It is a fully loaded Explorer,
Eddie Bauer edition. We got it on one of those "0% loans" so we got leather,
CD players, curb feelers, 9 zillion cup holders, the biggun' V8, and even
some of the special stuff like a no stain guarantee on the leather.
We have to sell it but know that we'll get hosed on selling a new
car just a year after we bought it. So, I want to try something different.
If we get 300 people to commit we will give the car away. That’s right GIVE
IT AWAY. Well, we really aren’t going to just give it away. We are going to
give it to the person with the best essay. I'll come up with the rules this
week. You submit an essay; pay us a small stipend for reading it and rating
it and the best essay gets the car. Sound good to you guys? We'll make sure
Here are some of the rules I came up with so far.
Topic: Must be about what you will do with the car the first week of owning
Spelling errors automatically forfeit
1000 word max. (Double space, single space whatever, must be less than 1000
2 weeks to write the essay
of Chris or Steph may play
Anyone trying to sway judgment by
using friendship ties will forfeit
Judges will include
Chris, Steph, and three others picked by all individuals playing. (My vote
is for Lars Larson as a judge)
We will need to come up with how
the essays will be rated too.
Each contestant will receive a numbered
ticket which they will put on the paper as their ID. The winning paper will
be announced and the person holding the corresponding number wins the car.
