Reminiscence: The New Yorker Contest I Won


In the early 1990's, SAAB ran a regular (yearly?) contest in the New Yorker. A New Yorker artist would create a cartoon and readers were invited to submit captions. In 1993, I entered and won, the top entry of 2000 entries. My prize was a 6 month lease (with insurance) of a new SAAB of my choice, a trip to NYC for two, with a stop at the Liberty Science Center in NJ for the unveiling of SAAB's new model, dinner and a room at the Algonquin hotel, and a tour the next day of the New Yorker magazine.

Here's a photo of the cartoon (below) and one of me with the car (above).
