Good news!!!…Remember your visit to Hamtramck, Mi???….
Allee, the word is out that a Chevy Volt Super Bowl Ad was just filmed featuring Hamtramck, Mi!! The news has Hamtramck and all of the Detroit area very excited, The GM Hamtramck Assembly Plant (Buick-Oldsmobile-Cadillac) is now home to the Chevy Volt.
The wait goes on…no decisions yet on which Ad GM will run for Super Bowl…fingers crossed it will be the Hamtramck themed Chevy Volt…

    You know how much I love hearing this given my love affair with Detroit (where I will be once again this March when Cass becomes the first high school ever to perform my musical, The Color Purple).

    I really hope this commercial is the one chosen. I could absolutely feel the excitement about the Chrysler commercials when I was in Detroit last April, and I totally think they improved the image of the city. If Chrysler can make a comeback so can Detroit. If for some reason they choose not to run that one for the Super Bowl I still hope they will run the commercial after that. But it would be so hip of GM to do it so all my available digits are crossed!

    Hamtramck is also the home of the fabulous Kowalski sausage (and sign) and hollywood In Hamtramck. For those of you not familiar with Hamtramck here’s some of my posts that include it from last year:
