    Default "Free" red car in front of Elbow casino?

    OK, every time I take McLeod northbound I notice the small, two-seater red car in front of the Elbow casino which they're giving away. It holds a "win me, free draw" type of a sign and it's been on there for months now. Now who can tell me what is that car, I've never stopped just to take a better look at it, but it annoys me every time I'm driving that way I see it and can't figure out what it is. Someone has to know what the car I'm talking about is. The front of it kinda reminds me of the front of the pre 94 supra, and from the back... I dunno, somewhat reminiscent of an MR2...

    Heh, since I work at a casino (not Elbow) I should go in there and tell them "come on man, hook me up with the car, i work at a casino too". But seriously though, it looks like a nice little car, wonder how much longer will they hold it up there for the raffle....

    I think it's a Triumph TR-7 with a body kit
    They're supposed to be kinda fun to drive.

    You can make some serious coin raffling that car off. It's so beat, the car looks like it's been repainted with spraypaint, and looks to have lots of dent (hail damage?).

    That thing's worth like $2k tops.

    Yeah, I notice that car all the time, and it looks pretty harsh. The paint is pretty dull, but haven't taken any closer looks. It looks like there's also some major bondo work on it.

    Just looks cheap to me.

    its actually a car you can win at a draw they do like every few month

    the winner gets a pick. either the car or $5000 cash
    and the reason why the cars been there for like 2 years is because everyone picks the 5 grand.

    if i won i rather take the money prize anyways

    don't waste your time with it. Sam bought that car to give away to one of his customers. It's a bucket. Even my Ol' Busted is faster than that car. Pop the hood on it and you will see what I mean. When he first brought it in there three years ago, he showed it off to some of us. We laughed after he walked away cuz we wanted to keep our jobs. He doesn't even know he got ripped on the deal.
    and behold a pale horse, and he who rode it was death, and hell followed with him...
