Cash for hair offer, if you need some hair

It turns out that clunkers aren't just parked in the driveway. Sometimes, they're sitting on your head.

It turns out that clunkers aren't just parked in the driveway. Sometimes, they're sitting on your head.

In a twist on the federal government “cash for clunkers” auto giveaway, Cape Coral entrepreneur Robert Galuzny is offering $500 for your old toupee in a deal for hair-challenged people.

Trade in the “clunker” hairpiece to Galuzny's company, Patricia Robert's Hair RX, and he'll take $500 off the $2,000 hair replacement treatment. Galuzny's ads, which play off the federal car-subsidy program, are starting to air this week on local radio stations in Cape Coral and Naples, where he's planning to open a second location.

Galuzny says it's too early to tell if the program is a success because the ads are just starting to run. But if the federal car program is any indication, he'll soon be shredding toupees — and needing to raise more cash.
