Wife likes the idea of an EV

My wife shocked me the other day when I mentioned that since most of my local trips are less than 20 miles, I wished I had an EV to run to the hardware and grocery store and such. She piped right up and said, "why don't you make one from a Lotus 23 body kit?"

(We have a composites business and make Lotus 23 (among other cars) bodywork for the vintage racing crowd.)

I she a keeper or what!?

Now I gotta start reading up on EVs...

Best tank ever: 72.1 mpg in February 2005, Seattle to S.F.
New personnal best 'all-city' tank June '08 ... 61.9 mpg!
Thanks to 'pulse-n-glide' technique.
