SOUTH BRUNSWICK, N.J. (AP) - A New Jersey car dealer plans to keep his word after offering Florida pastor Terry Jones a new car if he promised to not burn a Quran.

Car dealer Brad Benson made the offer in one of his dealership's quirky radio ads, which focus more on current events than cars. But he was surprised when a representative for Jones called to collect the 2011 Hyundai Accent, which retails for $14,200.

"They said unless I was doing false advertising, they would like to arrange to pick up the car," Benson recalled. At first he thought it was a hoax, so Benson asked Jones to send in a copy of his driver's license. He did.

  1. The rag didn't get burned but jihadis still blew themselves up and killed women and children.
    That preacher makes PT Barnum smile in his grave.

  2. For those who didn't bother to follow the link, here is "the rest of the story..."

    "The Quran commercial was part of a regular "idiot award" segment Benson has singled out others for, including Lindsey Lohan, Mel Gibson and Roger Clemens.

    "We don't have your typical car commercial," Benson said.

    But they are memorable—and effective. Three years ago, he was selling 60 cars a month, he said. Today, that number is between 500 and 600—making him one of the state's most successful dealers."

  3. Brad Benson, as you might be able to tell from the picture, is a former NFL lineman for the Giants.

    His radio ads are memorable and too the point. He's one of the good guys and I have no doubt he is a man of his word with this offer. His commentary during the ads are well worth the listen.

  4. I didn't burn either, but I 'may' have dropped 50 cent sized .762 grouping through one.

    Do I get a moped?
