This one is pretty fun. A California bank called Travis Credit Union is hosting an “Ugly Car Contest.” Participants are being asked to submit a picture of their ugly car to the credit union’s Facebook page. The car they deem the ugliest will win the submitter $1,000!

I love wacky contests like this because they are easy to participate in and you have a great chance of winning. There are only 8 entries so far! Anybody can enter and you don’t have to be a member of the credit union to win.

You can submit an entry from January 15th to February 14th, 2011. Once the submission period ends the judges will choose their 5 favorites cars. They will then ask their Facebook fans to vote for their favorite car out of the 5 finalists. The overall winner will be crowned on February 28th, 2011.
