The 2010 New York International Auto Show (NYIAS) opens at the Jacob Javits Center on April 2 and runs through April 11. The show will once again host some of the hottest cars and trucks around, with several new concepts, and plenty of new '10 and '11 production models being shown for the first time. While most people who go to an auto show come away happy, there are going to be several folks at this year's show who are going to be ecstatic. One of them will even drive away in a brand new car.
The reasons is Jeep will be hosting a Tweet-to-Win Contest, rewarding five fast-fingered individuals with a free trip for two to the NYIAS. Even better, when they get to the show on April 1, they will get a chance to win a brand new 2010 Jeep Wrangler Islander Edition.
Entering is simple, especially if you already have a Twitter account. The official rules can be found here but basically it's a trivia contest via Twitter. Just go to http://twitter.com/jeep and follow Jeep, then answer a question correctly when they post questions. A new winner will be selected each day through this Friday.
If you're the first to reply during the contest, you and a friend could be on your way to New York. Don't forget to include @Jeep, and #NYIAS hashtags in your reply.
Once at the show, the five contestants will be led to a giant sandbox, where a “Golden Tiki” has been buried. The first participant to find the little statue gets the keys to that 2010 Jeep Wrangler Islander Edition.
The Islander package includes 32-inch off-roading tires on 17-inch Moab wheels, a special cloth interior with surf blue inserts and embroidered logo, a unique Tiki/Islander hood emblem, leather-wrapped steering wheel, side steps and Mopar rubber floor mats. The last time Jeep offered an Islander edition was twenty years ago and this update is just as fun and flashy.
