Date My Chevy Sonic!
February 14, 2012 12:00 pm ET
It’s been a week since Valentine’s Day and I’ve been asked out on some great dates… I am in high demand you know… But I’ve got a lot of road to cover and I want my little black book to be filled with choices.
That being said, I am going to be accepting date suggestions and ideas via Twitter for remainder of the contest, as well as via the online form below.
To send your date idea via Twitter – shout out to @GMNortheast and tell me where you’d like to take me. Be sure to include my hashtags #GMNER and #DateMyChevy.
Tell me what “date” you’d like to take me on! I’m looking to try new things, experience some “firsts” and make a great impression. Our date can be as simple as a drive-in movie, parade in your hometown, or maybe even to check out the home of the Buffalo Chicken Wing… I can’t wait to see where you’ll take me.
Chevy Sonic Dating Profile
About a year old
Fun, adventurous friends to show me a new “first” in their neighborhood
Subcompact: 4-door Sedan or 5-door Hatchback, with a small and sleek body and a bright exterior… think motorcycles…
I was born and raised in Detroit and just moved to the Northeast to fall in love. I am young and small, but aggressive, and am proud that I am the only small car built in the US.
I’ve got a turbo engine, so I like to move fast. And with OnStar, I am really well connected everywhere I go. When I’m on the road, safety is important to me, and I have all the latest features. Oh and I’m easy… to parallel park that is!
I know you are intrigued now, but you’ll have to meet me to see the rest…
My Ideal Date
I’ve got youthful style and a sporty drive – big performance from a small package, so my ideal match will have a “Let’s Do This” attitude and be willing to try some firsts. I’m attracted to people with a passion for driving and a fun spirit. I want someone in control and confident, so let go of the brakes and navigate our date!
I want to meet someone who wants to take me for some test drives and show me off to their friends and family.
Sports & Exercise
Hitting the open road, climbing steep hills and weaving through traffic in the city.
I love all things American, especially baseball, hot dogs and apple pie. I like moving fast, winding roads, and the wind in my grill. I think road trips around my new home area and hitting the streets with fun passengers are the best way to spend an afternoon.
Here’s how “Date My Chevy” works
Tell us which event, festival or activity, in your neighborhood, you think would be a great date for the Chevrolet Sonic. It can be anything from a conference or festival to something as simple as a movie release or pizza party.
Our team will select the five (5) most fun and interesting options from the submissions via the online form and Twitter. The five (5) finalist submissions will be posted to our website and our readers will be invited to vote for their favorite Chevy Sonic “date”.
The “date” with the most votes wins! We’ll bring the Chevy Sonic and if the conversation and company are good, we may even just pick up the tab – so bring the fun!
We’ll be accepting your nominations until March 2, 2012. All nominations should be completed online by filling out the form below or Tweeting us @GMNortheast using the hashtags #GMNER and #DateMyChevy (the @GMNortheast handle and #GMNER #DateMyChevy hashtags must be used for Twitter submissions to be considered for a finalist spot.
