It's cool that you're doing the "outreach" part of owning an EV.

Aside from the EV Expo in Ottawa last May, the closest I've come to doing that is showing the ForkenSwift to a few different people who read the thread and contacted me, asking to come look at it.

Plus a week or so back, I stopped in at the forklift place where we bought the lift truck & showed it to the guys there. Our city has a fairly large car show (150-200 vehicles) in the summer. Ivan & I were debating whether we'd want to enter the car in it or not.

Anyway... I like the yellow tank!
