Ms. Dodge Wins 2007 Ford Mustang, Doesn't Want It

Becky Dodge (yes, that's her real name) won a 2007 Ford Mustang from the Topeka Duck Race, but isn't sure she wants to keep it.

very year in Topeka, Kansas, there is a rubber duck race. Every year, thousands of little yellow rubber duckies are set free on Lake Shawnee to race. They are sold to help raise money for Big Brothers and Big Sisters and the Sertoma Clubs of Topeka. Every year a winner is chosen. But the winner of this year’s event doesn’t think she’ll keep the grand prize, a 2007 red Ford Mustang.

Becky Dodge (yes, her last name is Dodge) purchased three of the $5 rubber ducks from some kids selling door-to-door. Those three ducks — numbered so they can be tracked — were then released onto the lake with up to 12,000 other ducks. Not every duck was adopted.

Dodge’s duck “swam” to the lead, and finished the race first, turning Dodge’s $5 investment into a Ford Mustang. But, being named Dodge, she doesn’t think she’ll keep the car.
I’m just a single person, so I don’t know if I need two cars,” she said.

Clearly Ms. Dodge isn’t as big of a car enthusiast as I am, because two cars for one person seems perfectly normal to me. But perhaps Dodge would’ve been happier with some of the other prizes available, including jewelry and a flat-screen television.

Of course, she isn’t sure she wants to keep the Mustang because she doesn’t want to deal with two cars, and not because her last name is Dodge. But the irony is not lost on this author.

They grow them strange in Kansas, don't they? Well, she could take the car, auction it off and donate the money back to BB BS. Come on girl, take the write-off!

Who wants a used 2007 Mustang? That being said I'd still take it to sell.

I am single and have three cars [ big garage ] and I would be happy to take it. My old '01 SN 95 DD is high mileage and the '07 would make for a nice replacement. My girlfriend likes red and if it's an auto trans she would be able to drive it too.
