local radio station invitation - win a car
Hi everybody! I got a phone call from a radio station this morning. I am invited to go tomorrow to Pensacola and go to one of those shows (I guess that's what it is) and I then pick a car key and if the key starts the car the car is mine. I am invited, yet I still have to register. Has anybody ever been to anything like that? How many people are you competing with, I wonder? Should I go?

A radio station in MN did that a few years ago and a friend of mine was one of the finalists in it. There were 2 keys on the board that were supposed to start the car. He had one that turned the ignition but for some reason wouldn't start the car. I'd definitely go.

I went to one MANY MANY MANY years ago and it was fun!! They had 100 keys to choose and my key was 74 and the girl won the car with key 66.

I absolutely would go because you can't win that car if you're not there. You may not win, but then again YOU MAY, so just go to have fun and enjoy the day filled with excitement.

I will be thinking of you with lucky vibes to pick the right key! Have fun and GOOD LUCK.

If you go, please let us know how you did. Remember, we're behind you 100%.

I think you should go. It sounds like fun, and you could win a car.

I went to one where I got key #59 out of 100 and #3 won. Very short game. Definitely go if you can. They usually don't have more than 300 contestants, so the odds are better than any sweep you enter here. Good luck!

you are on a sweep site where you want to win a prize....and u are questioning about the chance to win a CAR????

Did you put in for a contest to win a car? Or did you win a radio contest? Sounds like you qualified for a key turn because i don't know why else a radio station would be calling you.

I hope you go and win! Good luck!
