Fred and Judy Morris may have had a merry Christmas lined up, but that merriness got bumped up several notches Friday when Fred dropped in to Oceanside GM to talk about buying a new truck.

When his name was punched into the computer, he found out he was the winner of a brand new car.

General manager Andy Lankester said GM Canada has a Connect and Win program wherein customers enter their names and 20 winners were picked across the nation. As it turned out, Morris was one of the 20. When he called his wife to tell her the good news, at first she didn’t believe him.

“I thought he was playing a trick,” she said.

However, as the couple put the key into their new Chevy Equinox, the very convenient truth sank in.

“I’m very pleased,” she said.
