Palm Desert Man Wins Statewide Car Giveaway

Christopher Thomas says he's ready for a road trip!

A 66-year-old Palm Desert man is now the driver of a brand new car after winning the grand prize in a statewide contest.

“This is by far the coolest prize I’ve ever won,” said Christopher Thomas, who recently won a California contest hosted by Mercury Insurance.  

The company handed over a three-year lease on a 2013 Hyundai Veloster, which retails for about $20,000.

“The Veloster is a beautiful car and I’m very thankful Mercury drew my name.  Now, it’s time for a road trip,” Thomas said.

Mercury’s three-month promotion allowed California residents 18 years and older to complete an online auto insurance quote at mercuryinsurance.com and automatically be entered to win the car, according to organizers.
