On February 9, With the signing of the I Am Vermont Strong license plate bill, Governor Shumlin gave his official authorization to purchase a Vermont Strong license plate and affix it to the front of your vehicle.
To show our support for the recovery efforts, the H-Team has purchased 100 Vermont Strong plates. Five of these plates will be given away via social media, each of the remaining 95 will be included with your purchase of a new or used vehicle at Heritage Ford, Toyota and Scion.
If you’re not in the market for a new vehicle, but still want to contribute to the cause, you can help too. For a $25 donation to the fund, you can get your own I Am Vermont Strong license plate today by visiting the official Vermont Strong website, here.
The H-Team’s support of the recovery efforts goes beyond just license plates, and if you wish to support the cause and a license plate isn’t for you, there’s more you can do too. Visit RebuildWaterbury.org and learn about what’s being done to breathe life back into Waterbury and the surrounding communities affected by the hurricane, and make a donation to do your part to help. The H-Team will match your donation up to $10,000.
Two weekends ago, during Super Bowl XLVI, Chrysler took a stab at Ford’s F-150 in their commercial, 2012. There has been some chatter as to whether or not Ford should retaliate with its own commercial, proving that the F-150 is the superior truck. Ford doesn’t have to produce a commercial to prove this, the numbers don’t lie.
Over 35 million sold
23 MPG highway
19 MPG combined
5500 lbs standard towing capacity
You can’t sell 35 million units of an inferior product. You don’t win Motor Trend’s Truck of the Year four times and not be recognized. And apparently, you don’t get to be the best selling pick-up truck of all time without making a few enemies along the way.
Still not convinced? Take a look at a comparison between a 2012 Ford F-150, 2012 Chevrolet Silverado, 2012 Dodge Ram, and a 2012 Toyota Tundra, here.

Friday evening, the H-Team and Rusty Dewees welcomed about 50 local community members to the Majestic 10 Theater for a special public preview of the SB Remembers Documentary. The documentary highlights the planning and construction of the new South Burlington Veterans Memorial to be erected at Dorset Park. The documentary was locally promoted on Sunday through a Super Bowl commercial, seen below.
The event was a resounding success, with Rusty Dewees and the H-Team’s own Toby Tyler chipping in to help raise $1,000 in a silent auction. The weekend also saw the official launch of the newly developed SBRemembers.org, where visitors can learn about the memorial and see artist’s renderings of the proposed final product. Since its launch on Sunday, the site has already generated $500 in donations to the memorial project.
The H-Team Antifreezers take to the lake for a good cause
The Veterans memorial wasn’t the only worthy cause to have received special attention from the H-Team this past weekend. A group of courageous H-Team members braved the frigid waters of Lake Champlain on Saturday morning as part of the annual Penguin Plunge, helping to raise money for the Special Olympics Vermont. The Antifreezers were among the first to race into (and out of) the lake, donating over $1,800 to the charity, which raised over $300,000 for the Special Olympics of Vermont.
