Contestants Camp Out to Win Stinky Cars

By SHARE

You know what we usually call people who live in cars? Homeless. Or hippies. But for a month in Georgia, we can call them "local celebrities," apparently with no job but with big dreams. A University of Georgia student and seven other contestants are calling two SUVs home until July 13, according to the Red and Black. The vehicles are parked in the middle of a mall and are free of any "luxury items" like books and iPods. The point of all this? Whoever lasts longest gets to take a car home—and, one hopes, some air freshener, too. —Alison Go
