Mannyman Goes Electric

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

Electric Dragin' in San Diego Jan 2008

September 2007

I was tapped to be Project Manager for the EVAOSD (Electric Vehicle Association of San Diego).

Our intent is to to create the largest Electric Drive EVent in San Diego (later West Coast, United States, and finally the Planet Earth.)

I made a little Web Site for the extravaganza here:

So, to make this happen we need Electric Cars, and we need Sponsors.

By the way, all proceeds go to the San Diego Environmental Foundation.

If you or your company can help, please fill out the sponsorship form or hit the PayPal donation buttons on that site. A small payment will get you or your organization immortalized on T-shirts, Programs and the Web site.

If you would like to participate (Hybrids are welcome) register and come down and race or just show off your vehicle.

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."
