As far as Dealer hand outs go, this one looks like it would be a lot more fun then a letter opener or paper weight!

This is similar to a game called "rush hour" where you try to move a single car through "parked" traffic to the exit. http://www.play.vg/games/124-rush%20hour.html

Just put the cover back on the box turn it over onto the cover and remove the bottom.

Can you see the waiting area in the service dept. I bet the dealer loved this because the whole group of waiting customers would be quietly intent on this little diversion instead of bugging the counter guys.

That's great, but did they give out free tube type gas tank checkers?

Stumbled upon the same puzzle on eBay - notice that it is copyrighted by a different person:

I assume since the games are exactly alike, that they were just licensed to each company separately.

I got back from Mexico and went shopping for my grandchildren. A
fter purchasing a bunch of things I felt as if something was missing until I remembered the Dad's Puzzle posting.

It took me a bit of time but I found the perfect box at Ikea.
After a few hours with the table and chop saws and a bunch of scrap 2 by's I had just the right thing.
In the end I made 5 sets.





I'll paste a copy of the instructions in the top.

PS I used to drive thru Hornell NY when working in the Corning Glass Research Center so the insert will be special.

Fred, Neat stuff! Thanks for sharing.

Fred,

That's an excellent idea! Low cost and you're assured no one else is going to be giving the same thing.
