Using a 2012 Chevy Sonic for a hair wax

by Cornelius Nunev

Hair removal by means of automotive is not a good idea. But it will certainly attract attention, as Philippe Bond of Montreal's Bond d'Essai Chevrolet meant. By means of wax pads, ropes and the bumper of a 2012 Chevy Sonic, Bond cut hair off his body in the pursuits of advertising the new Chevy sub-compact.

Secure, unless you get a wax

It is very important to know that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration does not ever test a vehicle to see if it is safe for waxing. Someone should tell this to Philippe Bond. In fact, vehicles are not meant to be a part of waxing the body in any way, shape or form. The 2012 Chevy Sonic did get a five star crash safety rating from the NHTSA though.

'The Price is Right'

While the starting price of the 2012 Chevy Sonic hatchback is right at less than $15,000, some wonder if the price is wrong for Mr. Bond. Would super-"Price is Right" host Bob Barker have used an automobile to wax his chest hair? Sure, Barker got a chance to show his stuff when he beat Adam Sandler into submission in "Happy Gilmore" and when his Claymation likeness single-handedly spayed and neutered all feral cats in the greater LA area on "Robot Chicken." But Bob Barker has dignity. He would not wax himself with an automobile, even one as acclaimed as the 2012 Chevy Sonic sub-compact.

Sonic info

There is an ECOTEC 1.4-liter turbocharged engine and 6-speed manual transmission in the 2012 Chevrolet Sonic. It shifts smoothly and has a ton of power. It is the only turbocharged engine in its class, and gets 40 mpg on the highway. In 7.8 seconds, it can go from 0 to 60, and it is something people are considering for additional than just hair removal. It has very unique lines in the body that make it look very unique.

OnStar is integrated in the car, which would help if something went terribly wrong while Philippe Bond did his hair removal.
