If you are willing to drive around a car that's covered in a company's ad, you can have a car for free, for two years (minus gas & insurance). Advertising-supported car ownership!

If you already have a car you can also be paid $400/month to have it covered in ads.

Neat! I signed up to have my car wrapped. I don't think I would want one of their cars. You have to sign up for insurance through Progressive and I don't like them.

It sounds interesting. I do wonder if you have the right to say no if it is an ad you don't want on your car. I can't imagine pulling up to pick my kids up at school with playboy plastered all over my car.

I was wondering this too. I sure hope you have some say in the ads!

Found this in the FAQ:

<table align="left" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="500"><tbody><tr><td align="left" valign="top" width="5">
</td> <td align="left" valign="top" width="470">What do I do if I’m uncomfortable with the type of advertisement on my vehicle?
You can refuse to accept that particular program and still be eligible to be picked by a different advertiser. It is in everyone’s best interest to make sure you support and are happy with the program. However, you will not have the ability to be selective on the designs or colors that our advertisers decide to use for a program.

No kidding! I wouldn't mind having an extra $400 a month to put toward debt. I've got my fingers crossed

That's a neat opportunity! I remember a few years back some college students were earning extra money by having temporary tattoos on their foreheads with different company logos.

I don't know about this one, I'm not sure of them doing a background/ criminal check or a credit check . Not that I have anything to hide, but I am getting scared putting info on the computer anymore. Anyone else feel like this? I just feel we are to open to whoever anymore and for all the privacy agreements there are now adays,it seems we have no privacy at all, and all our personnel info if just there for the asking. Read the agreement very closely .Just my opinion.

My understanding is they are "leasing" you a vehicle, and will do a check to be sure you're fine. No different than leasing any other vehicle. Of course you can ask them if you're selected what it pertains too. But as a company, you think they'd want to be sure the person they are giving the car to for 2 years is a good risk.
