2011 Chevy Volt: A Surprise Gift!
June 22, 2011
Look what came in the mail today to "Volt Owner."
Wonder what's in it....
Ohh, bubble wrap.
....and a classy Trapper Keeper with a magnetic closure.
Neat...there's stuff inside the Trapper Keeper
Like this book, Chevrolet Volt: Charging into the Future by Larry Edsall with a foreword by Bob Lutz. $19 on Amazon.
Well that's neat, a Volt branded Flip UltraHD cam. $109 on Amazon.
There was also a card explaining what was going on. So instead of typing it, here ya go....
This is certainly a neat gift for the early-adopter Volt owners, and was originally a gift only for the first 100 Volt buyers, we were surprised to get it. But the surprise soon turned to joking as our office is a cynical bunch. Here are some of the comments so far:
"What, no carbon offset credits?"
"Is the box recycled?"
"Flip just went under, is that a good message for an innovative car?"
"Hey, did my tax dollars just buy you a Flip cam AND part of a car?"
