Too late! I already re-did the part she looks at

But you're right: I showed the ForkenSwift to one neighbour, and then got a phone call a week later from one of the other neighbours I hadn't yet met:

"I hear you have an electric car in that garage! I want to see it!"

I ended up bringing it to his model RC airplane club meeting this week. They're mostly using electric motors these days, so are familiar and interested in the whole EV thing. Spent an hour showing the car, answering questions and giving rides in a coffee shop parking lot.
