Participating From Your Barcalounger... The 2005 Jeep Unlimited Rubicon Giveaway
Now here’s the easiest way to participate with ORA and possibly drive away in a fully outfitted Jeep Unlimited Rubicon. Now, even though on their web site the good folks at www.barcalounger.com say that, “The reclining chair business isn’t what it used to be. It isn’t Archie Bunker. And it isn’t Monday Night Football.” I would still venture to say that the essence of the original concept of their chairs is that they are built for comfort and relaxation. So again, here’s the most relaxing way to participate: Step 1: Grab a pen, an envelope, a 1st. class stamp and your copy of ORA; Step 2: Go sit in your, “It isn’t Archie Bunker. And it isn’t Monday Night Football.” Barcalounger; Step 3: Find the page with the Jeep Unlimited Rubicon Giveaway entry form (page 31); Step 4: Fill out the information (and as always: please print clearly), and then; Step 5: Either tell one of your kids, or the little woman that you just got the family a new vehicle and now they need to do their part and put it in the mail for you. Or... you can just go online and enter on our contest page.
A Bit More Strenuous Participation... The Turtle Wax Best Looking Rig of the Month Award.
Okay, now this opportunity to participate takes a bit more energy on your part. In this exercise, you will need to get your camera and take a shot of your good looking “Baby” (your off-roading baby that is). Give us up to 80 words or so on what you have done to modify it and follow the mailing instructions on page 73 in this issue, or again enter on our contests page. If we select your vehicle as the winner, you will receive a Turtle Wax duffel bag packed full of Turtle Wax products and goodies!
Most Strenuous and Possibly Some Time Travel Needed... The JB-Weld Best of Before & After Award.
In this one, you again need to give us 80 words or so on your vehicle’s modifications, along with a “Before, and an “After” modifications photo. Now this one could be a little tricky to pull off if you don’t have a “Before” shot. If that’s the case, you’ll need to hop into your time machine (equipped with your, “It isn’t Archie Bunker. And it isn’t Monday Night Football.” Barcalounger) and go back to when you first bought it. If we select your vehicle as the winner you will receive an assortment of JB-Weld products and goodies! Check out the particulars on our contest page.
