Mission for 2007 Accomplished: Convert an ICE to an EV.

Hi my name is Manny. In March 2007 I picked up a nice '69 VW pan with upgraded disc brakes,shocks and an electric motor already mated to the tranny. I also acquired a '71 pan/'74 SuperBettle ICE based/'79-'80 styled Bradley GT2 (non-electric version with an '88 title.) from eBay. Took pretty much the whole month to get legal (not me, I was born here) with the DMV and CHP. Now the fun begins. Update: EV completed in December 2007

EV ( Electric Vehicle ) Conversion 4-21-2007

Tomorrow I'll be in a parade alongside a couple dozen alternative fueled vehicles. Most will be electric as many members of the EVAoSD will be in attendance. If you are in the San Diego area drop by the world's largest Earth Day event.

I'm no hippie, but even I know that a smog filled sky can't be doing us much good.

An experiment for all the .001% of doubters still out there, that don't think what we drive matters.
(Caution: Try this only if you drive an EV as you will die otherwise.)

  1. Park in your garage and leave your engine running.
  2. Close the main garage door and all other garage doors and windows.
  3. Duct tape a hose(s) to the tail pipe(s) of your running vehicle.
  4. Lead the hose(s) to your car window and relax awhile.
Disclaimer: You agree not to hold me responsible if you are dumb enough to try the above experiment.

Why I'm doing this.

Yeah, I care about the environment as much as the next guy. And yeah, I'm a nerdy geek. But, when it comes down to it, what really made me spend my free time and money on this endeavor, is knowing that: every time I put in any gas in my car, some money (a penny is too much) is going to people that want to KILL our kids.
"You don’t have to be a military strategist on the order of Sun Tzu or Carl von Clausewitz to understand: It is a bad idea to fund your enemy’s war effort. But every time we fill the tanks of our cars with gasoline we put money in the pockets of terrorists intent on killing Americans."
