Dedicated in memory of Jim Collins


The bumpersticker promotion was an on-going one, lasting a decade from
1973-1982. Stickers were available at over 300 7-Eleven Stores around metro DC.



Print Materials

The bumperstickers originally had serial numbers on them which were read on air.


An insert from a Sales Kit from in 1973.

This is what you need.

A WPGC shiny vinyl bumper sticker. And a car, with a back bumper. No substitutions please.

This is what you win.

Good, old-fashioned folding green. Lettuce, man. Bread. Mad money. Legal tender. Money, Money, Money. And prizes. Like transistor radios. Cassette recorders. Electronic calculators. And stereo phonographs, complete with woofers and tweeters. In other words, the whole ballgame.

And speaking of ballgames, there's a complete set of golf clubs, sans bag. And mini bikes, motorcycles and 10 speed bicycles (you're the motor on these). And a portable color television, only used on weekends by a little old lady school teacher. All this collective madness plus many other assorted goodies.

Here's How You do It.

Go directly to your local 7-Eleven Store or downtown Record City. Do not pass go. And pick up your FREE WPGC shiny vinyl bumper sticker. Clean off your bumper. And apply our sticker. Here's How you win: Listen to WPGC and watch for the WPGC Gold Money Car. If our lovely lady driver spots your car with your WPGC bumper sticker and calls your license number over the air, you're a WINNER! Winners will be selected at random. Bumper sticker must be on back bumper of vehicle to win. One bumper sticker per family please. Federal, State and other taxes levied on the prizes are the sole responsibility of the individual winners. Winners must pick up their prizes at WPGC Studios, 5801 Annapolis Road, Bladensburg, Maryland. A winners list will be available by writing WPGC Lucky Bumper Sticker Contest, P.O. Box 8550, Washington, D.C. 20027. Void where prohibited. No purchase necessary. Sorry, contest open to licensed drivers only, except employees of WPGC, advertisers, advertising agencies and their families.

Everybody plays WPGC's Lucky Bumper Sticker Contest.
