Spy photographer extraordinaire Brenda Priddy was so pleased that her "mugshot" appeared on Autoblog today that she's sweetening the deal for Autoblog readers only. If you donate any amount of money to her Jail & Bail charity drive that benefits the March of Dimes, you can enter to win this "ESPIONAGE" baseball cap from the International Spy Museum in Washington, D.C. that's been customized with the name "Brenda Priddy & Company" on the back. It's like real official spy photography gear, just make sure not to wear it in Arizona with a camera around your neck. Not a good way to make friends with out-of-towners just passing through.

Entering couldn't be easier. Follow this link to Priddy's Jailbird web page and choose to donate whatever amount you'd like. The amount won't affect your chances, but if you're cool you'll do at least $10 because it's for a really good cause. We did $25, but no pressure. This is the important part – when asked to leave a comment for Priddy, write "Saw this on Autoblog". Only donations that are accompanied by the comment "Saw this on Autoblog" can be part of the drawing for the spy hat.

If the response to this is good enough Brenda promised to pull out more spy gear to give away, so let's help the March of Dimes save some babies!

      Howard: I think the whole point of her "vigilance" is that the spy shots are her business. It's how she pays the bills. And when web sites steal (yes, that's exactly what some do) her shots, it's like shoplifting at KMart. She must have huge expenses. I'm always amazed when people turn the tables and make a situation such as the one I'm talking about - taking someone's property - photos or money or clothing or cars - suddenly makes the owner/victim the person in the wrong.

      I don't know if this is her favorite charity or not, but it seems to be a good cause. And she gets no personal gain here. As a matter of fact, it appears that she's even donating "prizes". What could be so bad?

      You are kidding?
      Brenda Priddy is notorious to motorheads on the net as a person who is EXTREMELY vigilant about being credited for her spy shots...and she wants support for her favorite charity?

      Car spy photographers steal nothing. They shoot vehicles out in public, which isn't illegal. There's nothing the manufacturers can do to stop them except for not driving test mules on public roads.

      And, the hat is a nice token offered by Brenda to encourage people to donate to a really good cause. It is just a hat, but there are a lot of people out there who donate money to charities without expecting anything in return. We're happy Brenda has offered a little token to sweeten the deal, but we didn't expect her to put up her favorite DSLR or anything.
