On the heels of Obama's speech announcing a shift in the U.S. economy away from fossil fuels, I'd like to celebrate that rare example of American ingenuity that will be leading the charge in the direction of significantly cleaner, kilowatt-powered vehicles.

The Chevy Volt in partnership with Wired Magazine just announced four winners of the Chevy Volt Challenge. Men (seriously there wasn't a single female who entered) submitted videos about why they deserved to fly to Detroit to check out the first batch of Chevy Volts. 

The entries were pretty endearing. Gotta love those DIY guys. Here are a couple of my favorites. To view them all check out the Wired Volt Challenge
