Aquila EV on Craigslist

My S & L will no longer loan for a car older than 2005, but I thought someone might be interested. Needs about 15 6-volt batteries according to the ad (SF Bay). It is white, but may as well be gold plated- too rich for my blood!

I have a funny Craigslist addiction! I found my City-el there, went through the bank- bought it, and after I had it found all sorts of details- # of them remaining, rarity, sold between Denmark to Germany, still being made but not available easily in the US.... made me into an accidental library!

Not your usual GEM, Xebra, et-c.-and that catches my attention!

Check out SearchTempest.com... You can pick a zip from the bay area and do a search of surrounding CraigsLists...

[oh] Petaluma - it was built in Cupertino for a VW frame about 1989 I think.

didn't look as hot as another one I found. I saw a vw conversion that looked like a GT40 for $10k.

Any chance that you might consider selling that City-El. I have been looking for one to add to my collection. If so, please respond to me directly at chasgould at mac dot com
Thanks,
Chas

My City-El was sold a few months ago (Feb. or Mar.). Many electrical problems, but those worked out (hot-wiring, charging with an external charger). No mechanical problems for me, but within 2 weeks it snapped the main drive belt- serpentine and not original- so the new buyer tracked down the owner I bought it from. Perfect vehicle but Santa Cruz is very backwards about EVs. I moved the same month an no outlets are available on every new building I saw. No more EVs for me!
