I don't think there is one on the 18th. Not sure why they said 16-18th. Maybe that's when they pack up and drive down to San Diego.

I'll let you know if one gets posted for the 18th.

I was planning on going to the Sat 10/16 event. I am confirmed by email for 10/17, but can't attend that because I have personal conflicts that day.

I am kinda ticked off that the Sat 10/16 event requires us to pay $25 to attend a fashion show. Per an email I received today from the Unplugged Tour organizing firm:

As Chevrolet is a guest at the Fashion Show, we are not in control of ticketing. Therefore, in order to drive the Volt on Saturday at "The Green Initiative - Humanitarian Fashion Show" you must purchase a ticket. To do so, follow the link below to complete this process. Please note: by attending the fashion show, you will not have an appointed time to drive the Chevrolet Volt, rather you will have to adhere to the guidelines and procedures as explained at the event.

Well, I made it to the LA fashion show event Saturday [yesterday] and it was great....the Volt that is, not the fashion show.
I bought my fashion show ticket as instructed [see my other post] and paid valet once I got to the studios. Then,, one of the Volt event organizers asked me if I paid valet [$10], which I did. I also said I was told I had pay for a fashion show ticket. Well, that was all wrong, and Cynthia made it all right, comping my valet and reimbursing me for the fashion show ticket. What a class act! Because, after all, I did not need to pay for either item in order to attend the Volt event. I really appreciate that good will on Chevy's part.

Anyway, I hung out there at the event for about 4 hours, talked to various engineers, assembly line supervisors, media relations, and customer service folks who were part of the Unplugged Tour. A great bunch who let me drive the Volt as many times as I wanted....about 5-6 times around the busy LA blocks, and answered all of my questions.

Thank you Volt Unplugged Tour staff for the chance to drive the car I've ordered, previously sight unseen!

The Best Buy Event was great! I'll have photos and a recap soon, but just got back from Los Angeles :)

Very happy to see the progress made from Pre-Production to sale intent vehicles. They are much more complete and refined as the months go on, but stay tuned for my full post on it :)
