If taking time off to visit Ocean City, Maryland, and catching the Red Sox on Fenway Park’s 100th anniversary (with tickets found on eBay, no less) wasn’t enough to fill his summer, John Borosky just hit the jackpot as the winner of $10,000 from eBay Motors’ Uncle Sam’s Garage Sweepstakes. The promotion ran from March 20th to April 17th this year, with weekly prizes awarded to lucky fans. Mr. Borosky got the good word in mid-July that he had won the $10,000 grand prize not long after having returned from that Ocean City trip with his family.
John has been an eBay member for ten years, and browses the site regularly looking for deals of all kinds, but spends a lot of time on eBay Motors specifically looking for great deals. Mr. Borosky says his best deal came in the form of a 1995 Chrysler LeBaron convertible found in 2003 for $1,500. John rented a car for the drive to Pittsburgh to pick the LeBaron up, and it didn’t give him any trouble on the ride back home… And is still on the road to this day.
What will John do with his $10,000 winnings? He says that after taking care of the IRS, the Electronics Mechanical Work Leader will look for some fun for him, his wife, daughters and grand-daughters to get into. Maybe another trip to Fenway or possibly taking in some racing action at Richmond or Martinsville. John says he enjoys the Wildwood, NJ boardwalk car show at the end of September and might try to catch that as well.
Beyond that, there may just be a new convertible in John Borosky’s life soon: John says he wouldn’t rule out purchasing a Cadillac convertible. While he hasn’t found the right deal yet, John says he’s browsing and if one jumps out to him, he may just go for it.
From all of us at eBay Motors, congratulations John Borosky!
