What an interesting thread.

And a beautiful image:



I've driven & cycled across the Lion's Gate more than a few times. Lovely, lovely. The west coast is so nice, makes me think this country is too big. Too far away!

Anyhow, happy to see and follow yet another hybrid restoration thread.

I test drove a gen 1 Prius when they first came out and can draw a cause/effect line from that experience to building the ForkenSwift. I got a wicked EV grin the first time that gas engine shut down and I was coaxing it along quietly under electric power.
