Those... are some expensive headphones.

It's been a while since we last saw a luxury car around here, hasn't it? So let's kick off today with 3 Strikes:
2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA-250C (2L, AT, Becker Map Pilot, rear deck spoiler, keychain; GOS)

Since I rather doubt that particular Mercedes is a $90,000 car, that pretty much cinches where that 9 has to go, doesn't it?

...Where did this show find a Mercedes for under $40,000 in almost-2014? That's all I want to know.

It's a 50-50 chance, and I thought from the get-go the Bonus was with that blender. But they haven't always put it beside the toughest prize lately (as had been the pattern for a while)... we'll have to cross our fingers and hope for the best...

That's another bullet dodged! The only sad part is, with three wins, this episode already has more than anything else from this week...

Shirlene has made The Trip™ from Utah three times, once in 2006 (to see Bob) and again in 2010 (to see Drew). Third time's the charm, apparently, and it leads to a funny exchange as Drew tries to pitch to the prize reveal:

Drew: "George, she went to all this trouble -- did you fly or drive?"
Shirlene: "I get to drive it back!"
Drew: "I don't know if it's a car... what if it's a... what if it -- y'know, if it's a bedroom set, you're gonna be crying..."
Shirlene: "If it's a motorcycle I'll take it!"

Fortunately it is a car game -- unfortunately, it's one with a decidedly spotty record of late, Lucky $even:
2014 Ford Focus SE (2L, remote keyless entry, CC, 6AT, paint/fabric prot, satellite radio; RR)

Hey, look on the bright side -- this could easily have been Stack the Deck or Gas Money. ^^;; At least this one has been won fairly more often of late.

See? ^^ Big sigh of relief there.

Pity poor Stanley... on the verge of being shipped to Leftover Island, which has actually been rather sparsely-populated this week. But hey -- he does have this last chance. Let's see if he can make the most of it...

    1. With any luck at all, this was a one-time aberration.

  2. Curious; any chance of taking on the Davidson version?

    1. I don't have access to a whole lot of Davidson shows, but if I get a chance one day I might do a TPiRetro or two. Time will tell.
