Another Richmonder came on down and returned with a new set of wheels.
When Kathy White read Aleta Gwinn's story of winning big on "The Price Is Right" in Style two weeks ago, it was with a touch of déjà vu more than a touch, actually. White had her own brush with Bob Barker in October and won a new car.
"I was out there for my sister's wedding, and when I'm in California, we always try to do something touristy," White recounts. "So I said, 'Well, let's go on a talk show.'"
Although White's still disappointed that "The Tyra Banks Show" was sold out, she can't complain about the seats open at Barker's show: "My sister needed some wedding gifts, so we went."
White called Style from Patrick Chevrolet last Thursday to tell us about her win namely, the Chevrolet Cobalt.
"To be totally honest with you, I'm trading [the car] in," White told us as she waited to sign over the title. "Hopefully for a Kia Spectra."
White says she loves the Cobalt, but can't drive a stick. "If it was automatic," she says, "I'd be driving the wheels off it right now."
Incidentally, White's sister, the bride, walked away from the show with nothing. But White says she has a great gift idea for the anniversary: "Maybe a picture of me in front of the car."
White's big win is scheduled to air April 9 on CBS. An earlier scheduled air date for the show was pre-empted by former President Gerald Ford's funeral. S
