Auto dealer to give away SUV in Tupelo on Saturday

TUPELO – Ricky King knows that not everybody can afford a car or truck these days but he hopes his little gesture will help somebody.
On Saturday, King Kars in Tupelo will be giving away a late-model Ford Explorer. The drawing, to be held at 5 p.m. will be at the dealership located at 966 S. Gloster St.
“We thought that with times being bad and with kids going back to school that it was a good opportunity to give away a car,” King said.
“There are people who can’t get by right now, and maybe one of them will win it.”
The drawing is open to anyone who registers at the dealership and who is at least 21 years old.
“They don’t have to do anything but register, there’s no purchase necessary, but they must be present to win,” King said.
The Ford Explorer has been thoroughly checked out by mechanics, King said, and it is in good running condition.
