"The life of an automotive journalist is pretty great. What could be better than driving cool cars, sharing your thoughts about them and getting paid to do so," said Micah Muzio, video road test editor, Kelley Blue Book.  "We want to see how inventive, talented and just plain awesome our viewers are on camera. Ten thousand dollars and access to the exciting world of automotive journalism await the creator of the most dazzling video, but you'll have to act fast as time is running out to bring home the bacon!"
