So at the end of Dream Car Week, they gave away *one* Dream Car. Sure they gave away a bunch of regular cars during the week which added a little excitement, but to me, this DCW was just very meh. My two cents.

Was the ARP of the Mercedes-Benz in Punch-A-Bunch ever revealed? If not, does anybody know what it goes for?

Nope. I would've put it if it was. It's at least $35K

you do these gimmick weeks annually and they all can't be winners.

A lot went wrong though:

-The Bee bail (and awful SP pricing in that portion) and the last-chance A# loss really tanked the Dream Car portion.
--If they really wanted Bee to be won, you don't jack up the bailout by 5x. I don't understand tinkering with these... it happened with Gas most recently too.
--They didn't really want A# to be won as the common ending digits (059) were all not in the price, and all the low digits (123) were (contestants more commonly go with higher digits, all things equal). However, he managed to call all of 123 and it was down to 0/6/8. It was obviously 750, and a repeat 8 in the Maserati would have been pretty evil at that point, so it kinda had to be 6. Yet, he found a way to lose.
-In Golden Road they set up a slam dunk to get to the car at least, but the mother of the contestant insisted on repeating the same digit in both guesses, so it didn't happen. Sometimes the contestants just don't cooperate.
-Buck and Roll this week were set up very easy... but there was no luck in the games. (Seriously though, 3 picks and #4 had the car in Buck, that's won more than half the time.)
-They insisted on some super hard setups (L7, Grid) to keep things under control, but they could have really used those wins when the rest of the above went bad.

OA's setup today was kinda right down the middle, -95 was right for once but I think few people ever go 0 2nd on either try. I think this was fair after 5PT went good, but they kinda gave up on the week at this point, and offering a token Mercedes with 1/2 of the CAR holes as last time Punch was played for a car.

Overall there was confusion in our Discord when there was no promotion at all for this week until Friday evening, and no CBSPressExpress images went up. They clearly knew this week was a dud relative to past ones.

Small note to do with the 6th contestant: the New Brunswick city is just Saint John without an S at the end. In Newfoundland, it's St John's.

St John and St. John's  is even mixed up by fellow Canadians...
It's not like Mistaken Point  or lever  (Google Map it) Newfoundland
Or Moonbeam,Ontario where the place names standout.
The only same city place name in the United States that comes from the top of my head is Davenport which could mean Iowa,Oklahoma,California or New York as a example.
It's a easy mistake to make
