Wanted to report back to the forum. A few weeks ago, I posted a note concerning an offer I had received from COMAQ to participate in an automotive market research effort. I had been concerned as to the legitimacy of the offer.
I had my session with them yesterday and it was indeed a legitimate effort that was a blast! I had to sign a non-disclosure agreement so I can't get into any details of the vehicles and questions but I can tell you I got to do some SPIRITED driving on a track (my "counselor" was actually a professional racing instructor!) with some fun vehicles and I got $200.00 cash for doing it.
Bottom line: if you get a chance to participate, do it!
