A Macclesfield man who has 'never won anything' had his luck turned upside down after winning a dream car worth £35,985.
Macclesfield resident Peter Hutchinson has won a luxury motor with online competition firm BOTB.
The pensioner was surprised with a new Ford Focus ST when BOTB's Christian Williams turned up at his home to tell him he was a Dream Car Competition winner.
The retired 86-year-old said: "I just can't believe it. I have entered competitions before and have never won anything, neither has my wife.
"I have been playing this competition for over three years. I entered, not for myself, but for my children who have got old cars and never had much money between them. I had businesses so I'm ok.
"I said to the kids I'll run the new car for three months and then sell it so they can split the money between them and get new cars."
The grandfather-of-three, who has been married to his wife Catherine for 65 years, added: "I have had Ford cars before. They have always been reliable for me. This new car is so stylish and the colour was unbelievable."
Chrisitian said: "Peter is a big Ford fan so I am delighted to surprise him with this fabulous new car. It's great that he wants to help his children and we're delighted to help him with that."
BOTB hands over the keys to a stunning dream car each week as well as a lifestyle prize. Winners have bagged Rolex watches, holidays and motorbikes in recent months.
The company, listed on the stock market, was founded by William Hindmarch in 1999 and has given away more than £48m-worth of cars so far.
