Last weekend, as the new school year got into full swing, the Eco Car team returned from their various conquests of the warmer months to catch up and play some Mario Kart. Fearless team leader Balazs was kind enough to provide some love (in the form of breakfast — Kool-Aid Jammers!) for the members who attended the meeting with the hopes that his bribery could persuade the team to talk about the car instead of fixating on video games and Youtube videos. This was in vain, though we did manage to endow the new car with a name: Alice.
Fast forwarding to yesterday, the handsome gentlemen and elegant lady (we miss you Roberta! We missing being able to use plurals!) of the Eco Car entertained Alumi — past present and future — during the Engineering Expo as part of alumni weekend. This, of course, could not be accomplished without some degree of shameless self-promotion:
But really, who can blame us? Especially Steve, who could blame Steve? The majestic first conception of the Eco Car recovered from devastating turmoil in 2013 to return in 2014 and achieve victory in his last tour of the battlefield. He deserves to kick up his heels and be swooned over by his adoring public.
We thank Steve very much for his service and we look forward to participating in his victory lap with him. We also look forward to inviting Alice into the Eco Car Family very soon. Stay tuned kids.
