The Manassas version of the screen name "Prometheus" is an imposter and a fake.

This latest attempt at attempting to make a silk purse out of a pigs ear ranks right up there with Rick Hendrick (of Hendrick Motorsports fame) going on TV and stating that he wanted to purchase the first Volt. Imagine that one of the largest GM dealers in the country saying something positive about a GM vehicle.
I had the chance to talk to Dale Earnhardt Jr. at the Denny Hamlin Charity race at Richmond and asked him about the Hendrick Volt. All I got back was a good natured chuckle.
If sales don't improve soon, your analogy could become a reality!!

We know he's a shill.
I'm inclined to agree with you.
Given the amount of foolishness and outright fakery going on here, it's more than just a strong possibility!
I know for a fact there's at least one fool playing the role of several different screen names.

For the record.
My username is "Prometheus Dominic", and I live and post from USA exclusively.
It seems there's an individual who posts under that same username but lives and posts from the Canada.
This individual's ISP is in Canada, often showing an ISP location in the Canada, Toronto, Windsor, Hamilton area.

He is a fake and an imposter.

I just looked at the Prius PHEV sales and all the others. Now I like the Volt and realize it's a top seller.

If your user name is "Prometheus Dominic", then why does it say "Prometheus"?

Thanks y'all.
Glad to see there are a few honest folks out there who recognize the phoney for what he is.

Very close timing between posts by Luvmyvolt and the imposter from Manassas.
Could these two posts be by the same person?

One thing for certain.
Whoever the phoney from Manassas Va. Is, he definitely is a disturbed individual.

It's quite clear the phoney poster from Manassas, VA is just some disturbed individual indulging in perverse fantasies.
At least there are now many here who recognize the fool for what he really is.

Perhaps the phoney from Manassas, VA is having some angst because of the poor sales results for Volt?

The truth cannot be good news for Volt supporters.
And even worse news for GM.
Unfortunately, Volt sales are disappointing, to say the least.

Fatal for Volt perhaps?
The sales trend line is lower every month.
Is this perhaps indicative of the inevitable?

One of the big problems the Volt will face in the future is in the name, Volt. Now, most Americans have associated this name with failure, over price and lack of ability to be a primary car. Once a name gets a reputation like this it is hard, if not impossible to erase. I really look to see GM build this Cadillac version of the Electric Vehicle and phase the Volt out of production.
Good point. The name "Volt" isn't exactly inspiring either.
Considering its price point, "second cars" aren't usually in the premium priced category.
The lacklustre sales picture doesn't do much to the car's image either.
Especially compared to the hype Volt was originally pegged with-- it was touted as a revolutionary big seller and hasn't met that expectation.
I've maintained all along the public isn't ready yet for EVs.
Maybe in a few more years..........

Other manufacturers are bring back old auto names, the Vega would be a perfect name for the Volt.

Yes tickleshit's, names are important and if I compare Volt to the competition it's right up there at the top.
