FYI: www.DreamCarGiveaways.co.uk

The company is run by 3 petrol heads, who have grown up around cars their entire lives.
They set up with the sole aim of giving people the chance to win a dream car at the fraction of the normal retail cost. So far they have had over 1500+ winners since March 2018, operating as a registered company.


Win your dream car at a fraction of the cost!

Car raffles are a popular way to raise money for schools, charities, and other nonprofit organizations that need funds. People are usually willing to buy a raffle ticket for an expensive item such as a car, especially if the proceeds are going to help a good cause. Raffle a car by publicizing the chance to win it, and make sure to sell a lot of tickets.

    Sorry, I can think of plenty of other cars that are just as fast or faster and look better than this car. Especially for a lottery prize. Especially considering this thing is 15 years old with 70,000 miles. 

    I'm thinking of the lucky dude that won a C-8 Corvette. 

    Now that is a lottery prize car.

    Avg age for Dodge Challenger buyer is 51, and that's the youngest group out of all muscle car buyers. The avg for Mustang and Camero buyers are even older.

    On the contrary, avg age for Evo or its rival Subaru WRX owners is 20's or early 30s. Younger drivers are not into American muscle cars. I'm sure that ur older than 51.

        This reminds me of the DEAD DONKEY  joke

        The Dead Donkey

        Morty Applebaum bought a donkey from an old farmer for $100. The farmer agreed to deliver the mule the next day. The next day, the farmer drove up and said, "Sorry, but I have some bad news. The donkey died."

        "Well, then, just give me my money back," said Morty.

        "Can't do that,” replied the farmer. “I went and spent it already."

        "OK, then. Just unload the donkey."

        "What ya gonna do with him?"

        "I'm going to raffle him off."

        "You can't raffle off a dead donkey!"

        "Sure I can. Watch me. I just won't tell anybody he's dead."

        A month later the farmer met up with Morty and asked, "Whatever happened with that dead donkey?"

        "I raffled him off. I sold five hundred tickets at two dollars apiece and made a profit of $998."

        "Didn't anyone complain?" asked the farmer.

        "Just the guy who won,” said Morty. “So I gave him his two dollars back."

          There are enough videos of people who just have gotten their expensive sports car just to crash right after leaving the car dealership.

          They haven't learned to control it yet.

            My first car was a 74 Dodge Charger, my dad used to wash, wax, scrub the white walls and shine the chrome, lol

            He loved that car more than I did.

            It's a shame this young man wrecked his car, glad he's okay and nobody was injured.

              Used cars for prizes now!?!? 

              As crappy as my state's lotto is, I'm surprised they aren't starting this.  Instead of $1,000 cash you get a 1989 Ford Tempo!!!

              jj, I think they have a hot pink Prius with your name all over it.

                Seems to be some confusion about how a "used" car could be a lottery prize so thanks for showing that the "used" car was the prize and people bought tickets trying to win that prize. But I'll never entering their car into a classic car show their car is really a used car.

                "Car raffles are a popular way to raise money for schools, charities, and other nonprofit organizations that need funds.

                Yep, saw and bought tickets in every type of raffle from whiskey bottles to houses and properties; gun raffles are popular too. The profit from sales is usually 100% because many raffle items are donated.

                  Never knew used car prizes existed.
