Video contest to test drive the Volt (Please vote!)

Some shameless family promotion: There's a video contest run by Wired.com, and the winner gets to test drive a Chevy Volt. A short film my cousin made about my Uncle and his old Taurus made it into the top 10 finals of the contest, and I'm posting to solicit your votes for it, or at least to check out the contest. My uncle's name is Don Houghtalen and his car's name is Cave... I didn't watch any of the others yet, so there may be a better one, but I love the video my cousin made and that's the one I'm voting for. Any support is much appreciated - thanks!

If he test drives the Volt, will you post a brief review / interview here?

I'll certainly ask him for a review if he wins.

I gave him a vote.

the "leave keys in ignition and walk away"

is something I have done. the feeling that a car does make personality was within my mind, and a lesson learned. All cars suck.

I see that "ron facia" has found a net voting clan...

winning the majority with a the big hybrid suv, and solar in mexico.

I voted for him too -- but it looks like Ron Focia is running away with the vote, at the moment. He's got 50% of the total; which means his viral marketing is working well? Low key stuff in all the videos, really -- glad to see it.
