I won the biggest prize ever on the show. It was a VW Bug they customized with my name on the side. A bright yellow VW that said "Cindy's Bug" prominently on the side! They flew my sister to L.A. from Detroit after judging her letter "Show worthy and/or good TV" for that year. It was a complete surprise to me and my mom got me to the studio on the pretext of possibly meeting David Carradine. At that time I would have jumped off a pier just to swim where David Carradine fished! The show usually ended up as a "tear jerker" and this one followed tradition. Fred Holliday was cheerful and debonair as he asked "Would you like to take a trip down memory lane?" Wow, I was still looking for David and why did this guy think I had some memories? I didn't have any idea that it was my sister in silhouette on the stage reading that heartfelt letter about me, nor did I identify her voice (It didn't sound like David). I was completely overhauled when I heard "My name is Nancy, Cindy is my sister".
