I watch cartoons, its a fact, I'm proud of it.

When I heard they were going to give away Kevin's Challenger I was super stoked that I might have a chance to win it.

I decided to check the T&Cs only to find that you have to be between the ages of 6 and 17. OMG, what does a 6 year old need with a car? Furthermore, where were these kind of contests when I was a kid. All I ever had access to were the goofy little lego sweepstakes that CN always had.

Besides that, the Grand prize winner gets $7500 and the car, and then 99 second place winners get a $33 poster.

I suppose that is my rant for the day, and it is a bit of a childish one, but we all get a freebie once in a while.

Why on earth would you give a car and 7.5grand to a kid?

I can only assume the money is to cover some of the taxes and lisencing, but seriously, I dont think i would even trust an 18 year old with a Challenger.

I think that there's a technical no-no in that contest. Children (under the age of 18) cannot legally win anything. Their parents would technically be the ones who would win it.

The $7500 covers taxes, title, licensing, and transport.

Yeah I certainly remember that as a kid. Things like roll up the rim at Tim Hortons always gave away cars, and I'd mention that if I won my parents would have to claim it.
