Festival Fleamarket Annual Classic Car Show

Uncategorized | Posted by admin November 21st, 2010

Attended the Pompano Beach Festival Fleamarket car show. The car got a great response and was a crowd favorite especially with the younger generations. I was parked right next to one of the Grand Torinos used in the Starsky and Hutch television series. The only other electric at the show was a Porsche 911 conversion done by Paul Vaughn of West Palm Beach.

Wayland Living Green Fair – Nov. 7th

Uncategorized | Posted by admin November 7th, 2010

Got a chance to show the car at the Wayland Living Green Fair today. The response was overwhelming. I barely have any voice after talking to people all day. I am amazed how so many people even today are unaware of the viability of electric cars. I had a great time educating people on the technology. The best was the reaction from the kids and young adults.  There were a number of teenagers who were really into modifying cars who took a big interest.  Maybe we start a whole new generation of electric hot rodders.  Everyone was really amazed that the EV GT-40 wasn’t a commercial car built by a big car company, but by a hobbiest in a garage right in their own neighborhood.

Toyota and Lexis were at the show showing off their hybrids, but I was the only one at the fair with all electric drive.  Hopefully at next years show we will have some full on electric cars from Nisson and Toyota and Chevy showing plug in electrics.

I really want to thank the folks at Wayland Living Green fair for letting me show off the car.  If we are ever to move away from oil, its all going to be about educating the public.

All setup and ready for people to check it out

Battery Beach Burnout 2009

Uncategorized | Posted by admin February 21st, 2009

It was a great day for the annual Florida Electric Auto Associations Battery Beach Burnout.  Electric and hybrid vehicles from all over showed up for the event.  From a 1920 Milburn Electric car (yes, there were electric cars in 1920) to the 2008 Telsa Roadster, the show showcased the viability of electric vehicles.  

I have worked hard over the past month to try to get my EVGT40 running to take to the show, but it just wasn’t to be.  This didn’t put a damper on my day though because there was a lot to see.

This young man proudly showed me the car that his high school class has been working on.  It is young minds like these who hopefully will further the use electric cars.

This was another student project, a hybrid racer.

This company was at the show demonstrating a public charging station that they are trying to deploy in locations across the nation.  Users sign up on the internet and recieve a bar coded card which the system scans.  Once the user plugs in thier car and the system reads a secure connection, power is supplied.  When the car is charged a text message is sent to the users cell phone.  Should the connection be interupted the user is also notified.

This 1920 Milburn electric car is owned by a gentleman in Winter Garden, Florida.  Build in Ohio, there are only 35 still in exsistence today.  Though it now holds more modern lead acid batteries, it still runs off of a General Electric motor which was installed in 1920.  The Milburn Electric car company was purchased by General Motors in 1923 and the cars production was stopped.  For more history on the Milburn Electric Car go to http://www.milburn.us/history.htm.

An Electric DeLorean complete with a box waiting for the “Flux Capacitor” to be invented to power it into the future.  All kidding aside this was a very nice conversion and demonstrated its speed on the road coarse.

A 2008 Tesla roadster was one of the stars of the show.  With a price tag over $125,000 it is the super car of electrics.  Made almost entirely of carbon fiber the car is lightweight and fast.  Boasting a 200 mile range on a 3 hour charge, this car demonstrates where the technology is going.  It truly is a work of art.
