Can you really get a free car?
You may have heard rumours that you can get a free car. Well, this is not exactly true.
As old adage goes, you can't get something for nothing and this holds true in this case.
You can however ALMOST get a free car.
Why do I say almost?
Because you are going to put your car in a job!
Advertising companies are willing to employ your car to display logos, signs and almost any sort of fluffy toy that suits their marketing campaign.
You see, advertising space has become very crowded and advertisers in their wisdom have worked out that people actually pay attention when they are driving.
