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

EVS 23 and Electric Vehicle ( EV ) Conversion 12-5-2007

Got up super early this morning to accompany Keith on the drive up to EVS 23 at the Anaheim Convention Center.
Keith and I picked up a BugE slated to be auctioned for charity.
more pictures here:

Here's Keith tying it down to the bed of the pick-up. You might notice he's wearing the Official Electric Dragin' long sleeve t-shirt .

Keith and I, also drove by Aptera to beg them to attend the Electric Dragin' Event coming this January 26-27 @ Barona Drag strip here in San Diego County.

When we got back I had just enough time to attach my BelkTronix EV System Controller and DC/DC Convertor +Charger.

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."
