NORA Thomas didn't think twice before filling out a Battery World competition to win a car.
Thinking "you've got to be in it to win it", Nora gave her details then forgot all about it.
So she was speechless when someone called to let her know her brand new sports car was on its way to Rockhampton.
It's been a tough few years for Nora and the win has lifted her spirits.
In 2011, Nora had a couple of heart attacks and said she has been struggling with her health ever since.
"I am over the moon," she said.
"This is the best thing to happen to me in a long, long, long time."
Nora drove the Toyota 86 GT sports car away from Battery World yesterday.
She entered the Australia-wide competition after buying a new battery for the family ute, which is 25 years old.
Nora said she won't be driving the ute around anymore, leaving it for her husband in favour of the new car.
It's taken a while for the win to sink in though.
"I just keep shaking my head," Nora said.
"I'm usually flat out winning a chook in a chook raffle."
Nora said she was keen to take advantage of her good luck and bought a lotto ticket for this week's draw.
While she doesn't think she'll hit the jackpot again, her shiny new sports car is proof that it's possible.
