WHEN Charlie and Patricia O'Dell received a phone call informing them they had won a brand new Mazda 3 Neo from Ken Casson Motors and Grafton Shoppingworld, they thought someone was pulling their leg.
"Are you serious? You're not having a go are you?" was the stunned reply, followed by a lot of joyous screaming.
Mr O'Dell was over the moon when he picked up the keys to his new ride yesterday.
"We were thinking about buying one so it looks like we've saved ourselves some money," Charlie said with a laugh.
Ken Casson Motors dealer principal Steve Casson was happy to see the car go to a good home.
"It's really good to see a local person win the car," he said.
Charlie and Patricia submitted more than 30 entries into the joint promotion between Ken Casson Motors, Grafton Shoppingworld and The Daily Examiner.
The 2014 model Mazda 3 Neo is a major upgrade from the couple's old sedan and features all the bells and whistles including Mazda's latest Skyactive technology.
