"I had to roll up the rim three times just to make sure I wasn't going completely out of my mind," Eric Wilson said, remembering seeing the words "Win/Gagnez - Camry," on April 2.
After getting over his initial shock, Wilson asked the supervisor working at the time what to do next.
"I said to her, I know how to deal with a coffee, I know how to deal with a free doughnut, what do I do with this? She just got wide-eyed and said ‘I'll be right back!' The actual manager came out, and they were all shocked."
Wilson purchased the winning cup at the Tim Hortons CFB Kingston location on Niagara Park Drive.
After leaving the coffee shop, Wilson went home to tell his wife.
"She freaked out a little bit," he said.
His wife joked that he's bought enough coffee over the years to pay for the 2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid he won.
The Camry is the grand prize in the Roll Up the Rim contest. Of the 40 Camry Hybrids available to be won in 2012, 35 have been claimed, most of them in Ontario.
Wilson will get his new car on Thursday.
