Hands on a Buick

Thursday, May 29, 2003

Keeping your hand on a car for an hour, let alone 36, can be quite a feat, so it doesn't hurt to carry some reading material with you. Six local civic and non-profit organizations are competing for $5,000 in the form of a 1995 Buick Century pictured above, which is being donated by Storm Lake's three auto dealers, Fitzpatrick's, Rasmussen's and Schuelke's. The car has made the rounds among the dealerships Tuesday, Wednesday and today, before one individual from each organization attempts to keep one hand on the car for 36 hours starting at 4 a.m. tomorrow morning. The charity fundraiser is part of the dealers' annual New Car Dealer Days going on from 4 a.m. Friday until 4 p.m. Saturday in the Hy-Vee/former Wal-Mart parking lot.
