Win Brad's Chevy!! :)

Does anyone remember this contest that Chevy had over the summer?

I test drove a Camaro about 3 months ago and shortly thereafter I saw this contest and Brad Paisley standing next to a Camaro, and decided to enter, even though no one really wins those things.

Yes! Actually I got a phone call about two months ago...I could hardly believe it!! I got to order the Camaro up to $47,150 however I wanted.

Just got back from the Brad Paisley concert in Denver last weekend. I got to meet Brad and he signed my glove box for the new Camaro. It should be here in a couple weeks!!

Congratulations! I know how you feel...I won the JEGS Camaro over the summer. I still don't believe I actually won the car! Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks! Did you have to pay the taxes and fees on it? I do and it will be close to $5,000. Looking forward to that 1099 at the end of the year! lol

What's the first thing you did when you got it??

Very cool. Enjoy it. I sure am enjoying mine. You are so lucky. I never won anything significant like that & don't know anyone who has.

Congrats!

How did you get away with only paying $5k in taxes and fees? The IRS will usually hit you up for about 30% of the fair market value of the prize (or about $14,000 in your case).

The $5,000 is the sales tax, license & registration fees. I have no idea what the IRS bill will be when I do my taxes next year! --You are probably right--about $14,000. lol Oh well...still cheaper than buying it.

Ouch! Guess "free" doesn't really mean "free", does it?

Well, at least you can officially say you paid the lowest amount out of anyone here for a 2011 model.

I couldn't quite do it because I don't like the look of the ground effects. I got up to $44,320. I included the floor mats, cargo mats, car cover, satin nickel finish fuel door, and the 21" machined aluminum wheels ($4680! just for those wheels!) I basically got everything that I could include.

It's the 2SS/RS--SIM with the gray leather...
