Rock Hill Woman’s Non-Winning Lottery Ticket Wins Muscle Car

COLUMBIA, SC (March 12, 2013) – Neighbors are curious about the new car parked outside Vandra Patel’s house.

A yellow sports car with black racing stripes is hard to ignore.

The Rock Hill resident admits she doesn’t mind admirers of the Chevrolet Camaro she won entering non-winning tickets into the Lottery’s Muscle Car MoneyTM Second-Chance Promotion. Out of more than 255,000 entries received, Patel’s $5 Muscle Car MoneyTM ticket was selected to win the car.

“When we tell how we won it, we hear how lucky we are,” Patel laughed.

“Can I trade with you?” is another common remark.

For Patel, the funniest thing has been her kid’s reaction to the car.

“My 13-year old daughter actually asked us to drop her off at school,” said Patel.

Patel is one of five South Carolina Education Lottery winners selected to win a Muscle Car. Winners in Columbia, Lugoff, Simpsonville and Graniteville are enjoying new cars too.

Chevrolet, Camaro, the Chevrolet Bowtie and the related vehicle body designs are General Motors Trademarks used under license to MDI Entertainment.
