Man I would love to see that car in person. After VLC, Seven was my second favorite car at Xprize. Mostly because of the awesome effort of their entire team to take on building an entire car from scratch. And if it were not for a cheap Geo Metro clutch, they would have made it to the finals as a home built garage team...I suppose Edison2 could be said to be home built garage team, but on a slightly larger scale with a few more resources. See if you can talk him into a cross country trip. haha.

I'm planning on going to the MIT Edgerton Center on December 9th, and I am very much looking forward to seeing Seven again, now with it's completely revised body. I am also looking forward to talking with Kevin Smith and Jason Fagone!

Uh, "rearward facing" passengers = nausea most of the time.

I'd like to hear that conversation!

I was thinking about going to the Brooklin NY stop IF i can get the time off from work. Which is very unlikely during the holiday season.

In case you guys missed on facebook and twitter, the electric Very Light Car and CEO at an extinct gas station at the Grinnell, Kansas exit on Interstate 70.

Edison2 has been silent for quite some time. I hope this is good news. Silence can mean really good news is coming or really bad. I hope it is the former.

Anyone have any news? Anyone? Anyone?

Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.

I'd suggest sending a message to their facebook page. They're always receptive to questions.
