However, JEGS say that instead of the car, the winner can chose to receive $20,000 in cash. We can hardly wait to see who is going to choose the money over the iconic pony car.
"Our customers are car people so the best thing we could think of to give away was this great American-made hot rod," said Mike Coughlin, vice president of JEGS. "We're hoping to have a lot of fun with this Sweepstakes and I think our fans and customers will join in the excitement, especially as we get closer to July when we give this thing away."
"We plan to have the car out at several events during the year so people can see how cool it is in person. We encourage everyone to enter the contest and try their luck," added Coughlin.
Participants can enter the Sweepstakes by filling out the electronic entry form at JEGS.com or by sending a 3x5-inch index card with the entrant's name, address, city and state, zip code and phone number.
Mailed entries must be sent to: The JEGS "Win This Car! Celebrating 50 Years" Sweepstakes, c/o JEGS Automotive Inc., 101 JEGS Place, Delaware, OH 43015. Only one entry is allowed per family.
The JEGS sweepstakes will run as from now through July 4, 2010. The grand prize winner will be randomly selected on July 12, 2010. The Sweepstakes is open to all legal United States residents age 18 or older.
