    My first Volt Sighting!

    Considering that the Volt is not yet for sale in Idaho, I was a little surprised to see one on the road this afternoon. I think the plates were from California, which would make sense. It is a very handsome looking car and the color was the same or very close to the Sport Red of my Avalanche, so of coarse I liked it.

    It got me wondering how many others out there have seen a Volt on the road yet. Just curious.

    I've seen two. One at my local Central Market and just two days ago on the highway going the other direction. Looked great.

    ive seen two so far- one on the parkway and one at the dealership. i got to walk around the one at the dealer but since it was already sold they wouldnt let me sit in it. one in black the other in that typical silver. the red is by far the best color.

    I've only seen one on the road, it was in Thousand Oaks in late March. My friend didn't really know about them at all, but then again he's more of a V-8 kinda guy. He was impressed.

    I saw one in Carson, California in February, but it wasn't on the road. Since it was pre-sold, I couldn't drive it, but when they called me to drive a demo, but I wasn't there.
    I think the Volt looks well-appointed on the interior, the IP is great, but the car is kinda small for $41,000, a well-known fact.
    When they get the Volt down to $25k, it will sell like hot cakes, but for now, it takes California environ-nazis to buy one.
    If they don't get the price down, it will be the car that could have changed the world.
