We all get those days, don't we, where we chill out watching nostalgic game shows on Challenge. Infact you learn alot from them, like how exciting it was back in 1989, to win a camera or a toaster. I've even found an episode from 1987, in which my mum, aunties and uncle were competing (and won!) on Family Fortunes.

Well this week a friend of mine told me that Bruce's Price Is Right was on and this little gem appeared:

A Galliano!!

The producers of the show would often give away cheap motors for the thrill of the television, usually along the lines of a Suzuki Alto or Kia Pride, with once in a blue moon you'd get something that little bit more interesting. They have even given away an AC Cobra too, along with things like a Seat Cordoba 16v Coupe and a special edition Toyota Rav4 Edge. Some days the budget would be more.

A chap called Ady played his part at the end of Episode 14 of Series 13, whereby he could win a few flights across the globe for several days in various locations including Sydney, a Motorbike and most importantly, a brand new Paseo Galliano. He managed to secure himself a 3000 leeway to get the price right. 27000 was his guess and 29000 was the correct pricing for the bundle. He won!

For those interested, I'm going to try and steady film the episode for nostalgia reasons.

Ady, where are you? And do you still have it?!

Certainly makes me wonder if it's still around somewhere. I have a 1 in 25 chance that this could be mine or my mum's car.

The front lip as displayed in this picture is probably worth more to us now than solid gold.
