Kristin and I went to the farmers market this morning.

The car is still running off a hand throttle 0-5k pot. Her quote: "What's that thing you're holding?"

There are also big, scary looking cables running through the passenger compartment.

She stepped boldly into the passenger seat, and we hit the road.

It drove pretty well, and Kristin didn't freak out at all.

The best part about a CAR EV is that it has plenty of cargo space!

About a 5 or 6 mile trip, and NO GAS USED!

PS: all products were local!
