A Hooter’s waitress won a beer sales contest and won a brand new TOYOTA. She was blindfolded, taken outside to the parking lot and presented with her prize.
Only it wasn’t a new Toyota it was actually a new TOY YODA that she won.
The contest was evidently an April Fools joke put on by Hooters but Jodee Berry of Panama City, FL was not in a laughing mood. She quit her job and sued the company alleging breach of contract and fraudulent misrepresentation. She settled for an undisclosed amount of money. David Noll, her attorney, said that he could not disclose the settlement’s details, although he said Berry can now go to a local car dealership and “pick out whatever type of Toyota she wants.”
Nothing drives like a Toyota and sometimes nothing stops a Toyota

I figure the only way Toyota gets out of this public relations mess is to offer to everyone who comes into the dealership A FREE TOYOTA! Still, even then I think they still need to sweeten the pot like offering a cruise or something else. Right now Toyota is offering Zero percent financing for most of their models. Wow newsflash Japan, your cars don’t stop till they run out of gas or hit something very hard, Zero percent financing is not the answer. Get with the program or you’ll only be making lawnmowers. Comprende?
Will you or would you ever drive another Toyota? Let’s go to people for this answer:
Personally I think Toyota is getting a bad rep, the cars don’t explode at random or anything. Remember the Ford Pinto, now that car would. Bump it just right in the rear bumper and you set off a fourth of July type explosion. After which Jack Bauer would come running through the ring of fire wielding a firearm yelling at you to get down.. As far as a true American Bomb lets revisit the AMC Pacer, just God awful.
