Free Gun with Every Car from US Dealership

May 28, 2008
Posted in Uncategorized — Written by Nationla Numbers

Free gun with every purchase of a carA car dealership in the US is giving customers a free gun with every purchase of a new car – a move that has seen sales quadruple since the offer began. For those who have no need for firearms, a $250 petrol card alternative is offered alongside the gun – to date most customers have plumped for the latter.

Max Motors owner Mark Muller told the BBC “we’re just damn glad to live in a free country where you can have a gun if you want to.”

Amusingly – the logo of Max Motors, whose car dealership is in the US Midwest in Butler, Missouri – features an angry looking gun-toting cowboy. The outlet sells, amongst others, cars from Ford and Chrysler.

The offer is running until the end of the month – but highlights the requirement for an approved background check on gun ownership.

The dealership, whose slogan is God, Guns and Gas, say they are aware of the gasoline and crime problem in America, and want to be part of the solution and not the problem.

Whilst Nationla Numbers can’t offer something as exotic as a free gun with every number plate, we do guarantee to beat any other dealer’s price on our range of millions of personalised registrations. Here’s just a few to satisfy the inner cowboy/cowgirl inside.

Evans Pays lb5 Million for Ferrari Spyder

The Ferrari 250 GT SWB California SpyderA lb5 million Ferrari, once owned by Hollywood actor James Coburn, has been bought by BBC DJ Chris Evans. The 250 GT SWB California Spyder was bought at auction by Evans, who paid twice the estimated price for the sleek Ferrari at RM Auctions’ Ferrari Leggenda e Passione event.

Auctions are often a great place to pick up rare buys you’d never find elsewhere. RM Auctions’ founder Rob Myers told the BBC News web site that the fact the Ferrari was owned by Coburn was a factor in the higher-than-expected winning bid for the car, along with plenty of interest from other bidders, as well as Evans.

According to the Ultimate Car Pages web site, the California Spyder was a production car – however no two vehicles were the same, because they were finished to meet customers’ demands.

So it looks like Evans really has bought a piece of history for his lb5 million!
