You are right, the computer on that dash did suddenly make the car look a whole lot cooler.

The little plexiglass holder actually turned out really nice. Most of the time that I whip something up out of junk, that's exactly what it looks like. This was just a little last-minute idea I had because I am showing off the car at an "Earth Day Sermon" at a local church tomorrow!

I saw a car commercial on the televison that really made the car to be something SOOOOOO to be jealous of. And you know what? It really wasn't cool. If you want to spend 30-some thousand dollars to try to impress your friends, be my guest..

I like my car. It makes me smile when I think about it.
Uh oh. Must be that EV grin thing again.
