So I did this to the Volt last night . . .

I was mowing over some branches in my yard mulching them up like I've done many times in the past and one of the thicker ones shot across the yard and BAM! Right in the driver's door

Guess I'm going to find out how close the paint shop can get to "Viridian Joule"

That sucks on two accounts:

1. Branch to paint is no good.

2. Chip/dent will cost a few MPG at the level you are getting. (Jokes on me!)

The glitch in the Matrix

I'm not going to say the Volt is a rare car, but you don't see a lot of the green ones like mine, unless you live in north Lakeland Florida I guess!

I drove next to the guy for about a mile last night on the way home, it had to look funny to anybody behind us
