Makes you wonder if they where even considering having a car to give away.

Merltech: Makes you wonder if they where even considering having a car to give away.


The plan was to give him the money to buy the car, but none are available without a ridiculous markup.

If it was a charity giveaway I'd say Chevy could come up with one, but the state lottery can fix it themselves.

Meh, give me the cash instead.

Take the cash and buy a real sports car

Every year at the Evergreen State Fair there is a "Win THIS classic car!" raffle, and every year the car on display is the exact same one. It never fails to draw a crowd.

Uh, the C8 is the best sports car for the money by a very wide margin.

"Kahler, who is a used car dealer himself, "

aaaaand here's your problem. He's trying to con them down to list price, and there's not a dealer in the state that'll take 0 profit.

I think I'd rather have the $ rather than the car. There are much better options in that price range that I'd rather have. Lexus RC F is the first one that comes to mind.

I bet if she kept it in the box for a very long while, it would be worth just as much as a Toyota.

High end cars aside, there's a lot of things that could be done with the money. If one is playing/gambling from a scratch ticket, they probably need the money over a high end car.  Sure the high end car would be great to have but remember high end cars come with high end maintenance too.

I read somewhere she actually got the car later after a lawsuit. They didn't just tongue in cheek trick her with wordplay, they had fully implied it was an actual car and then gave her the toy as a laugh at her expense. She sued and won. That's the story allegedly anyway.

List price includes profit for the dealer.

The trouble is, demand outstripped supply enough that any dealer who has one knows they can sell if for at least $10k over list.

I bet they got her the most lowest end Toyota at the time too.

I can imagine how mad she must've been right after that blindfold came off. I can imagine the steam coming from her ears.

When they say its "hot" it sounds like they tried to give away a stolen car..

it was the first thing I thought of. Unopened Yoda box?  It's gotta be worth something to somebody. I mean I used to watch Pawn Stars and that other piece of shiat fake show with the storage lockers....obviously whenever they mentioned a price, I always took it with a grain of salt.

But yeah, in the box, untouched, un-opened = bigger bucks.
 
2021-01-22 1:22:40 PM  
They gave him a budget to order the car he wanted, including trim packages, performance packages, color, etc. Because of that, the car needed to be special ordered after he won. Because of Covid and the extreme popularity of the C8 Corvette, this is going to take some time. Dude just needs to be patient.

This photo has been running on Fark for a long time and I have never heard before that it was resolved in the way. Could be, just have never heard that.

David Noll, her attorney, said Wednesday that he could not disclose the settlement's details, although he said Berry can now go to a local car dealership and "pick out whatever type of Toyota she wants."

Good.  "Toy Yoda" would be funny at a $1000/plate dinner and charity-auction, it's just being cruel when you're farking over an employee.

Why the dumbass tag? In context, the only choice for that label here is the winner, and he certainly isn't a dumbass.

This should have a "Stupid" or "Asinine" tag for the Lottery folks who failed to deliver the prize.

Was never a fan of Hooters. Woman wearing tight t-shirts and cameltoe shorts slinging out crappy food never did it for me.

And it looks like the date on the first article I posted is wrong od they were over 18 year late to the party.  Because here's an article about the settlement that's dated May 9th 2002.

ok thought so. 20 years ago...

if the toy Yoda was still in the box all that time....it might be worth more now then the Toyota she used to drive because I assume by now, so got rid of it.

Granted I had a 2000 4-runner and I had it a good 15 years with over 200k on it. Probably would still be driving it if my step-son hadn't crashed into a brick wall with it.

You can get decades and hundreds of thousands of miles out of a Toyota if you treat it right.  They tend to rust away before the powertrain fails.

My 1999 4Runner is still going at 205,000. Just changed the timing belt again last week.

No rust issues in Arizona.

Well, I just hit 17,700 miles in my 2018 GTI with no problems, which I think is more impressive.
