Max Motors Giveaway

Submitted by on Thursday, 29 May 20083 Comments

A car dealership under the name of Max Motors in the US has found an innovative promotion to increase sales, since the start of the offer Max Motors has quadrupled sales. What could quadrupled sales? Giving customers a choice of either a Gun or a $250 fuel card is the answer, and to my surprise even with soaring fuel prices it’s the firearm that most have chosen.

Both new and old vehicles are sold at the dealership with a logo showing a Cowboy holding pistol in one hand and a petrol nozzle in the other, it’s no surprise potential buyers are drawn to the offer.

Owner of the Dealership Mark Muller boast “We’re just damn glad to live in a free country where you can have a gun if you want to.”
Mr Muller also added, every buyer so far “except one guy from Canada and one old guy” chose the gun, rather than the fuel card.  Thirty cars have been sold in the last three days, with the increase being put down to the promotion.

The promotion was inspired by Barack Obama’s comment about “those people in the Midwest, you’ve got to have compassion for them because they’re clinging to their guns and their Bibles.”  This comment riled Mr Muller who said “I found that quite offensive. We all go to church on Sunday and we all carry guns.”.

The offer does state an approved background check on gun ownership is required, so you can be relieved they’re not giving away pistols recklessly.

Fortunately in the UK we don’t have to be concerned about pistols being given away with cars. To be honest other then attractive finance packages, it’s hard to see what UK dealerships offer to entice buyers into the showrooms. It would be nice of them to offer a petrol card to the value of at least 80-liters (approx 2 full tanks).

    Its pretty shocking, but nothing suprises me anymore. I heard an interview about this on the BBC, which said people do need a firearm license before they can have the gun but its still an awful idea. I’ve heard of people with road rage pulling out baseball bats so now its gonna be guns. Absolute mayhem.
