Google/YouTube Plug-in Car video contest

Hey Folks!

There is a contest going on right now that we should get in on!

You make a video saying why you want a plug-in hybrid car. Winning videos will get shown at a big upcoming conference. Deadline is REAL SOON!

See details here:
http://earth2tech.com/2008/05/08/wan...d-tell-google/

https://spreadsheets.google.com/view...7Hg&email=true

I think we have enough people here either doing a conversion or wanting to do a conversion that Ecomodder could submit SEVERAL entries.

I know Darin has done a fair number of videos already (and has a cool Forkenswift graphic) I have a video camera and could do something.

I am sure there are a few more folks here that could get an entry out!

I'm pretty sure some of us (ben!) could make a sweet video like "I want a plug-in car because my plug-in motorcycle is so sweet" with some shots of running around on the bike...

If anyone needs ecomodder graphics for this, let us know,

I got a vid.

OK. - I put my video out there.

I challenge any and all of you to make a video and enter it on why you would love to have/ or already have, a plug-in vehicle.

Mine is rendering right now. I will post it after it uploads.

-Ben
