Then there were FIVE...

I just got a press release from DIY Network (included below) that I am one of the 5 finalist to win the Trans Am pictured.

Mr. Brinkerhoff,
Congratulations on your selection as a finalist in the Burt Builds a Bandit contest on DIY Network and! As you are probably already aware, on Friday, December 14 at 8 pm Mountain, DIY Network will reveal the winner of a Burt Reynolds Edition Trans Am, selected by the legendary actor himself, during a one-hour special, Celebrity Rides: Burt Builds a Bandit. Tune in to watch for your name and see a portion of your video, or go to the following day to see if your video was selected. DIY is available in your area on Cox Cable on channel 133 or nationwide on DISH Network Ch. 111 and DIRECTV Ch. 230. For additional cable channel designations, you can check local listings or visit

Also, if you want to check out your competition, starting Monday, December 10th, will feature a different finalist's video each day leading up to the selection of the winner on Friday.

If you are selected as the winner next Friday, the following Monday, December 17, you will be contacted from a representative of the DIY Network to begin discussions on the logistics for delivery of the Trans Am. In the event that you are contacted by the media in the interim, please refer calls to myself or Brandii Toby at DIY Network or our public relations agency FerenComm in New York. We're happy to coordinate any media interviews or appearances that may come your way as a result of your being a finalist for the car, or if you are selected as the winner.

Congratulations again and thanks for submitting your video.

Right on Spencer! I just posted it on one of my computer forums to get my geek buddies to vote it up - if you win it I want a ride next time I visit!

Thanks ANONYMOUS for the forum post. I think that quite a few people will be wanting to see this thing in person. My mama told me not to give rides to strangers so you're going to have to sign your comments and come visit!

Yes! I'll be watching. If you win you gotta take me for a ride during Christmas break

It would be fun to set up a little booth like they have at the zoo for the Camel rides. Pay a few bucks, ride in the Bandit. :D
