Robert, who has entered contests al his life and never received an award, was overjoyed with the gift. The car was delivered on Christmas morning by General Manager William Ellsworth and General Sales Manager Bunny Moffatt, handing over the keys. Both thought it would be more fun to surprise them and play Santa on the right day - and that's just what they did."
