There will be no slowing Warwick local, Nicole Burt down now that she has been handed the keys to her race red Mustang Fastback GT.
Nicole landed the iconic muscle car, after her husband and business partner, Carey urged her to enter the 3M initiated nationwide consumer competition late last year.
Valued at $72k, the Mustang boasts a heritage few other cars can match and offers the unique combination of classic style, Hollywood stardom, and old-school V8 performance.
Nicole says that she was hesitant to enter, having never won anything and thought it would be a waste of her time.
“I’m thankful that my husband’s advice paid off, big time. Initially, we thought we’d won tickets to the Supercars and we were super ecstatic about that. When we realised the call wasn’t a prank, and we’d actually won a Mustang, our excitement took on a whole new level – there was much dancing and jumping around the office”, explains Nicole.
“With five males in the household including three teenagers on P plates, you could say our family is very eager to take possession of the most desirable car in the world, though, the teenagers will remain passengers for quite a few years to come, as none are licensed to drive a performance vehicle. Secretly, I’m thrilled as I won’t have to share the new addition to the family”, she continued.
3M’s Debbie said that the “Win a Mustang Competition” was a way for 3M to mark their association with Supercars and to celebrate the 2019 launch of Mustangs into the sport.
“It’s always fun to run promotions such as this and great to see positive engagement with our customers. We would like to congratulate all the winners and particularly Nicole and her family and thank them for their continued support”.
We’re guessing Nicole and Carey will be taking the “long and winding road” home after being handed the keys to their spectacular new car.
