Join Jalopnik On Facebook, Win A Mystery Green Box

Want to win a mystery green box full of the strange gifts desperate automakers toss at reporters? We'll randomly select a winner from the commenters on the "Mystery Green Box" thread on our official Jalopnik Facebook fan page. Details below.

Micki Maynard, former New York Times' Senior Business and Detroit Correspondent, is leaving the paper of record to become the editor for the Upper Midwest Local Journalism Center. Obviously a great time for cleaning house, she sent us her old car swag and we're giving it away all this week.

As we attempt to build the next generation of auto enthusiasts, we've got to find a way to get the pro-Jalopnik message out to the not-yet-car-loving masses. What better way for you to help spread the message to your friends — as loyal soldiers in the Jalopnik army — than Facebook?

All you have to do is head over and join our official Facebook page and drop a comment on the "Mystery Green Box" thread there (not here!). Your comment serves as an entry into a random drawing for the box. The box, which we assume is wrapped in green because Micki is a huge Michigan State Spartans fan, really does have something in it! All you have to do is join and comment.

Our standard contest rules apply.
