My Tofu Delivery Career Begins Tomorrow…
Scion’s “First 86” promotion opens tomorrow at noon EST. The first eighty-six deliveries of the new FR-S will be allocated to “winners” of the competition. To enter, one simply has to be willing to put $500 down within 72 hours — and willing to take delivery of the FR-S when it’s ready.
I am willing to do both.
I’m selecting the Ultramarine Blue with six-speed manual transmission. Will I be one of the “lucky winners”? I have no idea. It might be that ten thousand people apply tomorrow… or it might be me and one other frustrated forty-year-old street racer.
Either way, I will be detailing my experience as a potential “First 86” contestant and purchaser here on TTAC. And although it should go without saying, I should point out that I will be personally purchasing the vehicle. It won’t belong to TTAC, it won’t be a freebie from Toyota, it won’t be anybody’s corporate perk.
Cross your fingers for me, and we will see how it goes… and if you will be competing against me to get your own FR-S, please use this space, and the articles to come, to detail your own experiences.
