Please help my daughter win a car, UPDATE IN FIRST POST

Hi everyone, thanks for all your help!
Ford decided the winner of the 30 finalists last wasn't Pippa,(it was the girl who lived in the car for a week) but they were so impressed with how well the promotion went that they decided to add eight $500 prizes for the runners-up, and Pippa won one of those. She was certainly near the top, as they rang to thank her for her efforts and said the discussion about who should win had gone round and round because the contestants used so many different ways of promoting the car. Ford are planning to run similar comps again.

So, the promised Coles card prize.
We spread the word on various forums (fora??) so if you made a comment, could you please contact Pippa on Facebook before 26 February and tell her that you are from Lottos, so she knows which comments qualify for the Coles card.

Thanks again!! Great effort,
Rosemary and Pippa


Hi all,
My daughter Pippa has the chance to win a car; she has the use of it for two weeks and has to generate "interest" on Facebook.
I'll let her put the request in her own words...I don't "do" Facebook, so I don't really understand.

Pippa says:
"I have been selected as a finalist in the Fwd: a Ford Facebook promotion. Ford have given me a Ford Focus TDCi (which I have named "Butch" for the duration) to drive for two weeks and have a Summer Adventure. The winner gets to keep the car!!!

T&Cs say the winner will be judged as creating the most chatter/hype and in reading the fine print, much of that should happen on Fwd: a Ford.
Please help me out by becoming a fan and supporting me with Posts and comments on my photos or the car in general.

Because all contestants are using the same site to post, please make sure you use at least my first name, Pippa, in all posts/comments you start so everything counts towards my tally. Remember that the whole promotion only goes until the end of January so you don't have to be a fan forever!

Also (and I feel slightly bad asking this) please don't help out other people by commenting on their stuff! I need all the help I can get! is a Facebook site so if you don't have a facebook account or don't want to join, please make comments on the Blog i'm keeping of my summer adventure at I will be linking this back to the Facebook site with every new post.

I have also created a Facebook profile for my old car, "Dulcie" a 19 year-old Ford Laser who posts little 'whinges' occasionally because she's been replaced.
Feel free to become her friend and/or post replies to her comments on the site too. Over the two weeks, she *may* begin to like Butch...

If you would like to follow @Emulatori on Twitter, there are also tweets about my adventure going up there including posting my location.

As an added incentive/thank you to the people who help me out I am offering a prize. There will be a prize for the most interesting/relevant/helpful comment. So get creative! The prize is a $30 Coles Myer gift card.

Thankyou all in advance, I am in the first batch of 3 so it's a little tougher for us as there's been no preparation time. Others have been told they're getting their cars and have a month to prepare! I had a day and a half!

I'm looking forward to reading all your comments!!"

(Edited to change T&Cs for prize...I've been told it may not be appropriate to have a draw, thanks)

I'm following, but it's through Twitter, not Facebook as there is no Facebook link mate

Trying to find where to write a comment

Sorry, just did as she asked, and she's just gone out with Butch for some more photo opportunities...I'll get the link when she comes home. Thanks for trying!

Edit: links directly to the Facebook site.

Pippa was thrilled by the response...she has to give the car back on Wednesday :( but the competition will run for at least another four weeks with other finalists getting to use the cars, so she would be most grateful for any comments which keep her in the picture during that time.
Thanks guys!
