Want a free Lamborghini Gallardo from the Internet? Can't hurt to ask
The rest of his FAQ is equally straightforward and occasionally funny, reminding visitors that "I'm just a dude with a Paypal account" and advising of the many risks of giving him money: there will be no refunds, no tax deductions and that no corporate entity has backed his efforts: "I think I've made it abundantly clear that you don't get anything in return by donating. If you can't afford to donate, then don't."
In an email conversation, Mr. Free Lambo declined to reveal his real name, saying he wanted the focus to be on the effort itself. As the site's only gone live this week, he's had no donations yet, and since he hasn't settled on a particular used Gallardo he doesn't have a target posted (although his preferred LP 560-4 coupe will be hard to find outside a salvage yard for less than $150,000). And he says he'd gladly use said Gallardo for worthy causes, as long as he has the keys.
As for why he's asking the Internet for a free Lamborghini rather than, say, a free Kia Rio: "I think many people can identify with dreaming about owning an exotic supercar. Lamborghinis are what are on the posters that kids hang on their walls. While the M3 is probably my favorite non-super car, I just didn't think asking people to help me buy a Beemer had as much of a ring to it. Plus, if I'm going to do this, I may as well go big or go home."
How Short Term bCar Insurance/b Can Be Better Value Than An Annnual b.../b
Several automobile insurance policies are still sold for 12 months. As during a 12 month period the needs of drivers may change, short term insurance can now be secured potentially providing a better value and more flexible solution.
Most firms when referring to temporary motor insurance or short term cover would define this as lasting from 24 hours up to one month in duration. However, flexible insurance is now available for between 1 to 8 months.
To add to this, rolling pay as you go monthly insurance is now available to drivers. This gives the option to switch insurance on and off for times when they know it will not be required.
There are several scenarios where insurance for one day may be convenient. One is making sure you are adequately insured when using a friends car. Although you may be able to drive another vehicle on your annual policy, taking out an additional policy for this could protect any no claims bonus acquired. This could therefore be a cost effective option for more experienced drivers.
Another reason temporary insurance is taken out is to provide insurance for an additional driver so driving can be shared on a longer trip or vacation.
Insuring a visitor from overseas is an important reason for taking out this type of insurance. As is requiring 24 hour insurance when driving home a recently purchased new or 2nd hand motor. Taking a test drive and requiring cover for a day can be another reason.
Not many van drivers actually own the vehicle themselves. This is where one day car insurance can be very useful, if you are borrowing a van to move house or for other needs.
For those bikers that are planning a summer road trip or perhaps attending a biking convention or meet-up, temp car insurance could be useful if the motorbike you are riding is not one you use regularly. This could be cost effective if they only ride the bike occasionally.
