Did anyone hear about Oprah's car give away? Some days ago Oprah gave away over 276 cars. They went to her audience on the 1st show of her ninth season. They were Pontiac G6's, but hey they're free!

You should see a video on what Jay Leno has to say about it at www.msn.com . I love that guy. :clap:

It was a great PR move. Oprah did the work of finding people who really needed/deserved new cars, GM provided the cars, and they're both getting lots of free press out of it. In return, 276 people get a much needed new car. This is coporate America at its best! :clap:

Sounds like Pontiac had 276 extra cars they couldn't sell as rentals.


That reminds me of a story. The last time I moved, I rented a minivan from Enterprise at SFO to move some stuff. There was a Pontiac Grand Am parked at the pick-up office, facing the wrong way. It turns out that the guy was driving his own car and wanted to rent some other car. The front gate wasn't supposed to let him in, but it looked like a rental, so he was let in. :p
