Video: Chevy Volt subjected to durability test
For some people, the work life becomes too toxic to the point that they’d do anything to get out of their jobs, even resorting to screaming at their bosses just so the company has a reason to let them go.
But that’s not the case for one Murray Butler IV, who probably has one of the best gigs in the world – at least according to him.
Butler is one of those rare kinds of people who not only enjoys the work he does, but even compares it to like “being in Disneyland.” So what exactly does he do?
Continued after the jump.
Well, he’s a test driver for General Motors and his primary job description is to run new cars on a race track to test the car’s suspension and whether or not it can hold up to the rigors of the outside world. This time, Butler is taking the Chevrolet Volt – the same car that keeps getting its release date delayed for one reason or another – on a series of test runs at the Milford Proving Ground, particularly at the infamous Seven Sisters, a series of seven ultra-tight corners that was designed entirely for this purpose.
While we won’t disagree with Butler in his obvious fawning over his line of work – he does admit that he sometimes can’t believe that he gets paychecks for what he does – we think that he’s selling himself a little short there.
Hey, Murray! You ever heard of Valentino Balboni?
Now he’s a real test driver.
