To accommodate all the Volts that rolled up to our biggest Volt Owner Block Party yet, we maxed out the parking spaces at the Torrance Advanced Technology Center. We had nearly every color in the line-up represented (where you at Blue Topaz??).
Since we were hanging at the ATC it only made sense for us to host owners on a behind-the-scenes tour of the facility responsible for testing and developing some of GM’s most innovative vehicle tech including the Volt, Spark and some things we can’t even talk about… yet.
Anyone who’s crossed paths with a Volt owner knows they are always willing to talk shop. These block parties are just that – x10! With nearly 30 owners at the party, there were plenty of stories to go around. I never get tired of hearing from owners, especially when stories involve trading up from a Prius, Mazda, Leaf or any other car for a Volt. We know our owners are our greatest ambassadors, and we thank you for continuing to impress with your loyalty.
We chowed down on some great eats provided by the guys at The Wien Truck, who happily served up seconds and even thirds of every possible dog combo. Who knew that days later I’m still craving a fried onion ring on a cheesy BBQ flavored hot dog?
We’re off to Pleasanton in NorCal for another Volt Block Party this weekend at a place close to home. Well, in my mom’s case, it is home. That’s right, we’re headed up to Volt owner # 2080’s house for our first Bay Area Volt Block Party. So if you’re in the neighborhood, be sure to drive by.
