When it comes to being passionate about our cars, Corvette owners take second place to no one. Even Ferrari people aren't as fanatical as Corvette owners. So this morning's news that Shell Oil Company is offering a bunch of great prizes for car owners who can best describe their automotive passion is good news for 'Vette freaks.
Here's the skinny on what you need to do to win. Shell's got a bunch of categories to enter, and of course Corvettes fall into the "Sports and Performance Vehicles" class. The contest involves sending a photo of you giving the "V for victory" hand sign with your Corvette, and writing a few sentences about your car. To quote the contest rules: "The story portion of the entry should be creative and express a unique or special bond between the contestant and their ride as well as how Shell V-Power helps fuel that passion." The contest will be judged by an expert panel from various car and motorcycle enthusiast magazines.
Prizes include free Shell V-Power gasoline in quantity (which is very nice), and you also get entered in a sweepstakes to win up to 5 years of free Shell V-Power, or a Harley-Davidson Electra-Glide Ultra motorcycle, or a new Audi Q7 or S5.
Finally, you need to enter the contest no later than Tuesday, July 27 - two weeks from today. Entering the contest is free (but they do give you a chance to sign up for their marketing communications - nothing is ever really free!) If you like this idea, you can enter by visiting the contest website.
