Recharging Detroit Public Schools

GM is auctioning off the first Chevy Volt off the production line to raise money for the Detroit Public Schools Foundation. It's a great idea, and so far it seems pretty successful. There's still about 11 days left in the auction, and already the car with a MSRP of $40,280 has a bid for $180,000, and the next bid will have to be at least 5 grand higher to be accepted. Other car makers should steal this! How about a Tesla Model S auctioned for charity? Or a Nissan LEAF? Or a Ford Focus Electric? Via Charitybuzz, ABG.
