I read just recently there's a Dartmouth prof who has a solar-powered EV (panels on the roof of his barn). Of course I can't find the reference now...

If you do tell me the name...might be jim merkel? I know a few have grease machines.
I don't think there was a name - just "a Dartmouth professor". Sorry.

I realized after I posted this, I didn't get any images of the inside of the motor body - showing the field coils & shoes. Doh! I'll get 'em tomorrow.

And if Mr. Husted wants other shots/close-ups/mood lighting, I may be posting some more.
