I looked this site over and there are 2 things that look odd about it.

1) The public is encouraged to vote for specific vehicles submitted to be voted on, but I didn't see any rules governing why we should vote on any particular vehicle.

2) Near the end of the instructions called General Instructions, is this number 11, that says if the winner can't answer some stupid mathematical question, then too bad, we don't have to award him the grand prize. Whee. We run a contest, get their vehicle to use at our discresion (spelling?) and don't have to pay anything for it.

11. In order to be awarded the Grand Prize, the Participant with the Selected Entry must correctly answer a time-limited mathematical skill-testing question without electronic, mechanical or any other kind of assistance.

Cat, in Canada that "skill testing question" is something along the lines of (8+6)/2=?....apparently we have a law in Canada that stipulates you can't simply raffle something away for "nothing", you see the skill testing question thing alot here.

Now contestant, in order for you to win the grand prize, you must tell us what is 2 plus 2. If you guess correctly we will award you your prize, if not, then you will become a contestant of "Are you smarter than a 5th grader".

weird never heard of that.

I know some of the casinos around our parts have slot machines with wheels and patterns, ect. but what really makes the payout are these little "bingo" boards that are at the top of the slot machine. This way you are actually winning at bingo and not slot machines...

Who said that cheating wasn't permitted in casinos?

Oh right, "no cheating by the public is permitted" in casinos.

Sort of like it's not the goon squad, it's "security."
