I think of this vehicle as part of EV history ..

.. has anyone started a Museum to preserve such history as this? I did a quick search on Google and found several museums for production vehicles, past and present, but none for the REAL innovators ... the DIY crowd ..

Hi Gary, yes, I still have the Citicar. It's sitting over at a friend's house right now, waiting for us to do a brake job on it.

That's another reason. I have TOO MANY electric cars!
The Citicar is neat though, it has some history, and is extremely compact, so its very easy to garage and store.

unless your wife makes way more money than you, she should not have any say on you buying a citi car.
